Cumbria Winter Warmth Appeal 2018

Each year Cumbria Community Foundation runs the Winter Warmth Appeal, which has been running for the past eight years. 

In that time we have raised more almost £750,000 and supported thousands of older people each year.

Please donate to our Winter Warmth Appeal and help older people stay warm and healthy throughout the winter.

We also run The Big Sleep, which is an annual fundraising challenge raising money for the Winter Warmth Appeal.

People from all across the UK descend on the shores of Lake Windermere in the midst of winter and sleep out under the stars where temperatures have reached minus 6 degrees. 

“The Winter Warmth Grant was absolutely marvellous, as I have a basic pension. The house has night storage heaters so I don’t have a choice about how to keep warm. I avoid using the electric fire. Many days I do without heating.” Betty, 80, Alston.

Activity log

My husband and I wanted each to give our £100 winter fuel allowance to people who really need financial help to keep warm this winter. We are lucky enough to live in a warm and dry home but know how miserable a poorly built and damp home can be.
