The Surviving Winter Fund grew from people who wanted to donate their Winter Fuel Allowance for people who struggled to keep warm in winter. This fund has been supporting individual across Yorkshire for the last few years.
Two Ridings Community Foundation accept any donations to the fund, including people passing on some or all of their fuel allowance, and distribute small grants to partner organisations. Partner organisations then pass this on as they see fit, for people to buy blankets, hot water bottles, flasks, or to supplement fuel payments and so on – we ask that the grants benefit as many people as possible.
In the past, we have partnered with local Citizen Advice offices, groups supporting people who are homeless, and voluntary action services.
How to donate:
Anyone can make a donation of any size online by going to the Two Ridings Community Foundation website.
