Story

DON'T NEED IT? DONATE IT!

With rising fuel bills and the prospect of another cold winter, older and vulnerable people are at risk. Over recent winters, there have been on average 353 “excess winter deaths” in Suffolk each year, over and above what you would naturally expect to see, according to NHS Suffolk data. The vast majority of these deaths are people aged over 65. In addition, almost 30,000 households in Suffolk are experiencing fuel poverty.

Community foundations all over the UK are co-ordinating the campaign. What they collect, thanks to the generosity of the British public, can then be directly targeted to help those locally who struggle to get through the winter. Funds raised in Suffolk will remain in Suffolk, to be distributed by Age UK Suffolk to those most in need.
