Surviving Winter

One Community, the community foundation for Kirklees, is appealing for donations towards its annual campaign to help Kirklees older people, and vulnerable adults at risk, survive through the winter months.With autumn well and truly here, there are many residents in Kirklees who are already struggling to afford expensive fuel bills and will be unable to stay warm during the cold weather.

Surviving Winter Kirklees comes at a time when people are receiving their Winter Fuel Payments – which many feel they don’t need, and the foundation is asking folks to consider donating their payments, so that it can then distribute them to individuals across Kirklees facing difficulties this winter. The foundation would also like to encourage everyone concerned about the plight of folks struggling to heat their homes to also make a donation.

Last year, the foundation helped 26 individuals in need and distributed £4,000 in grants. Funds helped with emergency boiler and radiator repairs, replacement clothes, duvets, electric blankets and hot water bottles.
