the Community Foundation for the people of Kirklees.

Surviving Winter

We are now appealing for donations towards our annual campaign to help Kirklees older people, survive through the winter months. With autumn well and truly here, there are many residents in Kirklees who are already struggling to afford expensive fuel bills and will be unable to stay warm during the cold weather.

‘Surviving Winter Kirklees’ comes at a time when people are receiving their Winter Fuel Payments – which many feel they don’t need, and the foundation is asking folks to consider donating their payments, so that it can then distribute them to individuals across Kirklees facing difficulties this winter. The Foundation would also like to encourage everyone concerned about the plight of folks struggling to heat their homes to also make a donation.
