Surrey County Council supports our Winter Poverty Campaign with matched funding*

3rd October 2022

We are delighted that Surrey County Council is supporting our Winter Poverty Campaign this year with a pledge to match fund any donations up to £130,000*. This means that for every £10 you donate, it will be doubled to £20.

Winter poverty is the catastrophe about to happen for many people struggling to meet the cost of high energy bills this winter. Your donation will be put towards awarding grants to local organisations that are actively helping those in poverty in our county through food banks, community fridges, warm hubs, baby banks, debt advice, energy advice and other urgent help.

We urgently need donations to our Winter Poverty Fundraising Campaign. With your kind support, together we can combat poverty this winter in our community. There are two ways you can help:

If you are eligible to receive either the Winter Fuel Payment or the Energy Rebate and you are in the fortunate position of being able to manage without it, please donate the money so that we can use it to award grants to organisations who are providing urgent help to those in economic crisis.
