Winter Fuel Grants Surviving Winter Clare Sampson 2017-02-17 16:09:50

We are writing to you with a final update on our annual Surviving Winter campaign. Thanks to the generosity of parishioners and people right across the county, the campaign attracted over £90,000  in donations and Gift Aid this year. We are working closely with our delivery partners to ensure that nearly 500 vulnerable, older people in Somerset will be able to keep their homes warm and will be connected to social activities that prevent isolation from impacting adversely on their quality of life.

Here’s a heart-warming case study of a local lady that Surviving Winter has helped this year:

Mrs. Watts had a fall 3 years ago and suffered an injury to her shoulder which continuously causes her a lot of pain. She also suffers from osteoporosis in her knee, septic arthritis and a heart condition. During the winter months Mrs. Watts has the heating on for most of the day and will sit next to the radiator. The cold really affects her joints so she wears long johns under her trousers to keep warm. Her Surviving Winter grant will be used to purchase a warm pair of trousers and a long cardigan which Mrs. Watts will wear when she does the weekly shop on a Thursday. Surviving Winter has connected her to a case worker for Knightstone Housing, who will refer her to many other resources in the community to keep warm and healthy.
