Help with fuel in winter for the over 60s

Thanks to Sarah Roberts for highlighting this news item in the ACT Gazette this month...

Cumbria Community Foundation have recently launched their fifth annual Winter Warmth Appeal to raise money for elderly people in the county who struggle with heating bills. Last year the fund helped more than 1,000 people and raised £105,000.

If you would like to donate (many people donate a sum equivalent to their Winter Fuel payment if they don’t need it) – or if you know someone who may be eligible for help (over 60, Cumbrian resident and struggling to maintain a basic acceptable standard of living because of their heating costs) – contact Cumbria Community Foundation on 019000 825760 or visit
