TOGETHER WE CAN

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Surviving winter

With your support, we can help Hertfordshire’s most vulnerable residents to stay warm, safe and well.

Hundreds of older and vulnerable people in Hertfordshire are forced to choose between heating and eating during the winter. The coronavirus outbreak means that for many this winter is even more difficult and worrying.
Our annual surviving winter appeal raises money to reduce isolation, holiday hunger, fuel poverty and to help local people in need.

If you receive the Winter Fuel Allowance and don’t need it to pay your own bills, please consider donating it.

DONATE

Your gift will help provide:

  • vital grants to cover fuel and food costs

  • activities to reduce loneliness and isolation

  • support to help those in need to access specialist services and community groups.
