Surviving Winter 2012
“The Surviving Winter appeal is a simple yet brilliant idea. Millions of vulnerable and older people struggle with fuel poverty, and with the weather getting colder and energy prices on the rise, they are more at risk than ever. It makes so much sense that those who can help, donate to the appeal. I support it wholeheartedly, as the community foundations make sure that any donations reach those in need very quickly.” Stephen Fry
“Staying warm and healthy in our cold winters is something most of us take for granted. However, when the idea of those more fortunate “handing on” their winter fuel payments to local, vulnerable people was presented, I wanted to pledge my payment to the “Surviving Winter Appeal”. It would be great to think that all those people who are in a position to forego part or all of their own winter fuel payment could join this great scheme and spread a little warmth”.
