Tackling Winter Fuel Poverty in Epsom and Ewell
The Rotary Club of Ewell is pleased to announce the launch of PROJECT WENCESLAS in our area, a project that helps local people in fuel poverty. If you are in receipt of the Winter Fuel Payment from the Government and can afford to pass it on to someone in need then the Rotary Club of Ewell would gratefully receive your donation.
All the money that you donate will be given without any deduction for expenses towards helping those in fuel debt or struggling with the cost of their electricity and gas bills. We are working in partnership on this with Citizens Advice Epsom & Ewell, who will be overseeing distribution to local people in fuel poverty and in need of assistance.
Rotarian Maureen Kilminster says ‘Although we live in a fairly affluent area, there are still people in the borough who need our help, particularly as the weather is turning colder and the need to keep warm becomes a necessity - please help if you can.’
