Spread some warmth this winter by donating your Winter Fuel Payment

Somerset Community Foundation has launched this year's Surviving Winter campaign, which encourages people to join the growing number of contributors who donate some or all of their Winter Fuel Payment to help local people living in fuel poverty. This year, any online donations to the campaign made during the week-long Big Give Christmas Challenge — midday Tuesday 27 November to midday Tuesday 4 December — will be doubled!

Last year, over 500 older people living in fuel poverty in Somerset were helped to keep warm and better connected through the winter months, thanks to pensioners and other local donors who gave to Surviving Winter.

Help Somerset Community Foundation to help more isolated and vulnerable older people this year. To donate to Surviving Winter, visit www.somersetcf.org.uk/winter or call 01749 344949. Please remember that all donations will help the Surviving Winter campaign, but if you donate online between midday Tuesday 27 November and midday Tuesday 4 December your donation will be doubled.
