How we help
Our Winter Appeal raises money to give out in grants to help local charities and community organisations to support those in most urgent need during the coldest winter months and the current cost-of-living crisis.
Grants have supported grassroot community organisations like Jedidiah UK who provide a free fresh food pantry in Hertford helping people who are struggling to make ends meet access healthy fresh food which would otherwise go to waste, and the Bedwell Community Centre a vital community space in one of the most deprived parts of Hertfordshire.
The grants help local people like Jodie*
