HIWCF asks those in receipt of the annual Government ‘Winter Fuel Payment’ to make a donation to the Surviving Winter Fund if they are able, or to simply make a much-needed donation to help older people vulnerable to fuel poverty across our communities.
Last Winter, just over £2,600 was raised by Hampshire and Isle of Wight residents for Surviving Winter. Funds are recycled directly to those most in need of help, to ensure they can afford to stay warm, eat well and remain mobile during the coldest months, as well as providing practical help to assist attending doctors’ appointments, essential shopping visits and to maintain an active social life helping to prevent loneliness and isolation.
If you would like to support the Surviving Winter Campaign, please donate here. Alternatively, if you prefer to make a donation by cheque, please make payable to Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation, and send to: The Chief Executive, Surviving Winter Campaign, HIWCF, Dame Mary Fagan House, Lutyens Close, Basingstoke, RG24 8AG. Thank you very much for your support.
