Surviving Winter Appeal Makes Headlines Across the South

Lifesaving initiative raises over £60K to help older people in fuel poverty.

Surviving Winter Appeal Makes Headlines Across the South

We are very pleased that our county-wide Surviving Winter Appeal made the regional BBC South Today news yesterday on 11th January. The simple initiative which recycles unwanted winter fuel allowances resonates with many people who feel that they do not need the non-means tested benefit. We at the Foundation work hard to raise these donations and to also disperse them to local people in need.

Subsequently, our Chief Executive Jon Yates was also interviewed for BBC Radio Solent Drivetime and BBC Breakfast in Dorset.

Our very small team of five (and a half!) is very proud that the Surviving Winter Appeal is receiving regional coverage as more awareness and donations translated into more lives saved!
