    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In recent years we (ECOE) have been generously supported in our Winter Warmth campaign with donations to our Healthy Homes Hardship Fund. We are seeking donations again this year, to help us quickly respond to urgent needs in the community.

    We help families who are already economically vulnerable who find themselves battling illness, hunger and debt during the winter months. We help vulnerable groups who are at a greater risk of health concerns and isolation during the colder months.

    Local people have benefited from the donations made from these past campaigns. Last winter we helped 38 households with small grants (upto £300) from our Fund. These grants helped with replacing broken cookers and fridges, small essential household repairs, top up vouchers for prepay meters, food vouchers, carpets, debt repayment and supply of heated blankets and plug-in heaters.

    We couldn’t have done all of this without your generous support. A small donation can make a huge difference to a person’s life, health, and happiness.

    We expect the need to be even greater this year, due to the added financial pressures that many households are facing due to the cost-of-living crisis. We are grateful for all of your support. Donations no matter how small can help us to make a real difference in the local community
