Do you need your Winter Fuel Allowance?
Henley Lions Winter Fuel Project has a simple purpose. Many people who receive the Winter Fuel Allowance are in a financially secure position and could afford to donate it, or part of it, to someone in real need.
People in ‘fuel poverty’, are those whose energy bills are greater than 10% of the net family income. There are, sadly, many families and individuals in such a situation – even in and around Henley-on-Thames.
Henley Lions Club works with NOMAD and Citizens Advice Henley to identify families and individuals in need of financial support because they are in fuel poverty or fuel debt (unable to pay off their entire bill).
Having determined a case is worthy of support Citizens Advice Henley will ask Henley Lions to pay some or all of a fuel bill or fuel debt directly to the energy company involved. No monies are paid to the individual.
Please donate some or all of your winter fuel payment
Knowing there are many needy families and individuals in our district and having experience of other successful winter fuel projects, we are, therefore, inviting those for whom this payment is not essential to donate all or part of their Fuel Payment to this good cause.
All monies raised will be deposited in the Henley Lions Charity Trust Account and will be ring-fenced for the Winter Fuel Project.
Donations can be made online via www.henleylions.org.uk – click on ‘Donate’ and please identify your donation as ‘Winter Fuel Project’.
Donations can also be made by cheque or bank transfer. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0845 833 7387 for information.
for your support
