Surviving winter appeal launch

A NOTTINGHAMSHIRE charity is asking people who can afford to donate their Winter Fuel Payment to pass it on to others who feel the pinch during colder months.

Nottinghamshire Community Association launched its Surviving Winter Appeal this week and wants those that can to give the money to local causes.

WFP is a grant between £200 and £300 per household, made to everybody over 60 on the electoral roll, during November and December.

Donations to the appeal will be used to support local charities and groups who look after old, vulnerable and homeless people. To donate visit www.nottscf.org.uk.
