CAN Community Appeal – ‘Spread the Warmth’ and donate your Winter Fuel Payment
14th Nov 2019
CAN have launched a new appeal asking people to ‘Spread the Warmth’ and donate their Winter Fuel Payment to us to help others in fuel poverty. You’ll be joining a growing number of contributors who already donate some or all of their Winter Fuel Payment to CAN each year to support our fuel poverty and energy efficiency work targeted at helping local people struggling to heat their homes through Winter.
There were 707 ‘excess winter deaths’ recorded in Northumberland over the last measured 3 year period.* The principle cause in England of these deaths is too many people living in cold, damp homes they cannot afford to heat. CAN’s work seeks to directly tackle these two issues of energy-inefficient buildings and fuel poverty, and the money you donate will go directly to fund this work.
