Surviving Winter was started by people who wanted to donate their Winter Fuel Payment to help others in Somerset less fortunate than themselves.
Last winter, and with the support of over 300 donors, Somerset Community Foundation was able to provide vital grants to 390 pensioner households to help them through the winter months.
