Project Wenceslas

Tackling Winter Fuel Poverty
in Epsom and Ewell

The Rotary Clubs of Epsom and Ewell are pleased to announce the 6th year of running Project Wenceslas in our area, a project that helps local people in fuel poverty. If you receive the Winter Fuel Payment from the Government and can afford to pass it on to someone in need, then the Rotary Clubs would gratefully receive your donation.

All the money 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. Both clubs are working in partnership on this with Citizens Advice Epsom & Ewell, who will be overseeing distribution to local people in fuel poverty and 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.’
