This winter we will see even more pensioners facing the choice of heating or eating as energy prices rise. And in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, this winter will continue to be difficult and worrying for many of our older neighbours. Many will need to stay at home to keep themselves safe, will find themselves cut off from family and friends, and will face even higher costs to heat their homes this year.
Your gift will help provide:
vital grants to cover heating costs
community meals, befriending support or online activities to reduce loneliness and isolation
support to help those in need to access specialist services and community groups
You can support the Surviving Winter appeal by:
making an online donation: it’s quick and easy to donate and add Gift Aid to your donation
calling us on 01749 344949 to make a telephone donation by credit or debit card
sending a cheque made payable to ‘Somerset Community Foundation’ with the reference SW on the back to our address at the bottom of page via the link below. We can boost the value of your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate if you print, complete and return this Donation Form along with your cheque.
Please note, to maximise your gift we will no longer be sending a thank you letter/receipt unless it is requested.
