Surviving Winter is a UK-wide co-ordinated campaign to encourage people to make donations through community foundations to help older and vulnerable people affected by fuel poverty
Dame Helen Mirren said “When I heard about the Surviving Winter Appeal I wanted to be involved and was happy to donate because I believe passionately that we need to support the vulnerable and elderly in our local communities. Those who can afford to should be encouraged to help those more in need and it is wonderful to be part of such a caring initiative right across the country just before Christmas.”
Community Foundation for Calderdale are supporting the cause with the Make It Stop Appeal, all donations made to CFFC will benefit the Calderdale Community. With over 16,000 pensioners living in fuel poverty in Calderdale need is very high for support.
All donations made will be match funded pound for pound www.localgivivng.com/cffc
