Surviving Winter Appeal

Why we need your help

Our annual Surviving Winter Appeal aims to raise £150,000 to tackle winter poverty and isolation and we are urging the people of Norfolk to support those in their community who will struggle the most between now and the spring.  
Working with our key partners Age UK Norfolk, Norwich Foodbank and St Martins Housing, we ensure that all the money raised goes straight to the people who need it most, via organisations on the frontline.
This winter, as temperatures drop, harsh conditions arrive and days get shorter, thousands of people in Norfolk will struggle to stay healthy, warm and well-fed.  And it’s not just older people who will be affected. 
Previously, we have asked older people who don’t need their winter fuel allowance to donate it to those who desperately do. However, the range of people in need is much broader than just older people, and numbers are growing dramatically every year.  From families on low incomes struggling to pay their fuel bills, to those living on the street: from elderly people facing months of isolation and loneliness, to single people in poorly paid jobs and struggling to make ends meet: winter can be a frightening prospect for so many.
Our overarching aim is to reach those people who are currently on the edge of formal support but are in serious need.  Without urgent help, these people could easily fall into crisis and, for some, the support our partners provide could be the difference between life and death. The more money we raise, the more positive impact we can have.
