Donate your Winter Fuel Payment so Somerset’s elderly don’t have to choose between heating and eating

Description

Somerset Community Foundation (SCF) has launched this year’s Surviving Winter campaign, which encourages people to donate some or all of their Winter Fuel Payment to help local people living in fuel poverty. Any online donations to the campaign made during the week-long Big Give Christmas Challenge - midday Tuesday 1 December to midday Tuesday 8 December - will be doubled! SCF is also delighted to announce that Glastonbury Festival organiser and long-time Surviving Winter supporter Michael Eavis CBE has offered his support for another year.

Surviving Winter began in 2010 right here in our office in Somerset. We were contacted by one of our donors who offered to give his Winter Fuel Payment to help local pensioners struggling with the cost of staying warm and healthy. He wanted his donation to pay for the everyday essentials that most of us take for granted, such as heating, warm clothing and food. From this simple idea Surviving Winter has spread across the country, raising millions nationally and over £800,000 in Somerset alone. The costs of running the Surviving Winter appeal are met entirely from Gift Aid contributions, so donors can be confident that their donation will reach those who need it the most. But for this reason we also ask you to please print the Gift Aid form if you are able to do so.
