Surviving Winter Appeal

By Somerset Community Foundation West Bagborough Parish Council

Wednesday, 2 December 2020


Somerset Community Foundation strengthens communities, tackles disadvantage and transforms people’s lives. We are not cause specific, but our unrivalled knowledge of the charities and community groups that are helping Somerset to thrive, enables us to support any of our donors’ interests.


Would you like to donate your Winter Fuel Payment so that our elderly residents don’t have to choose between heating and eating?

An emotive headline but it is true that every year hundreds of our older neighbours across Somerset are forced to choose between heating and eating. The Coronavirus outbreak means that this winter will be even more difficult and worrying, as many older people will find themselves cut off from family and friends, facing higher costs to heat their homes.

Somerset Community Foundation’s Surviving Winter appeal encourages people who don’t need their Winter Fuel Payment to donate some or all of it to help local older people.

Online Surviving Winter donations that are made during the week-long Big Give Christmas Challenge - midday Tuesday 1 December to midday Tuesday 8 December - will be doubled. So, not only will your donation be worth twice as much, but even more older and isolated people across the county will feel warm, safe and well this winter.

If you would like to donate to Surviving Winter you can donate on line at this link.
