Sent on behalf of Mary Hancock, Operations Director, Somerset Community Foundation.
9 November 2016.
We are writing to you in the hope that you can assist us with our annual Surviving Winter Campaign
Every year, Somerset Community Foundation runs this appeal, encouraging people who do not need their Winter Fuel Payment to donate it so that it can be redistributed to elderly residents suffering from fuel poverty in the county. Although last year was relatively mild, we still saw a high demand for grants to help keep people warm, well and able to eat properly. During that time we were able to provide vital grants to 390 Somerset households to help them through the winter. For many the choice of heating or eating is a reality.
We would be extremely grateful to you if you could publicise this campaign in your Parish magazine by publishing the attached paragraph. If you wish to have more information or have further queries, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01749 344949 or visit our website
