Last call for Quartet Community Foundation's Surviving Winter appeal
An independent charity is making a last call for donations to help older and vulnerable people pay their winter fuel bills.
The Quartet Community Foundation has been running a Surviving Winter appeal to help people stay warm throughout the winter and is concerned that people are beginning to struggle as the fuel bills start to come through the doors.
Quartet quickly turns donations around by giving grants to community groups that support individuals in dire need. Grants pay for fuel bills, warmth packs, boiler repairs and hot meals.
Its development manager Jilly Edwards said: “This winter has been exceptionally cold. We all complain, but for older and seriously ill people it can be life-threatening, and we’re finding more people asking for help.”

So far more than 90 local people have already donated, and this has helped the B&NES office raise more than £39,000. Mrs Edwards said: “We very much appreciate every donation from the generous public, including many from people who’ve given up their winter fuel payment.”
