Surviving winter

February 26 2020

A CHARITY has launched The Surviving Winter Appeal as new data reveals 290 excess winter deaths in Bristol in the winter months of 2017/2018.

Quartet Community Foundation is asking those who can afford it to donate their Winter Fuel Payment, or other contribution, to its Surviving Winter Appeal to help older vulnerable people get through winter.

Sue Turner, chief executive of Quartet Community Foundation, said: “Already this winter local people have donated to the appeal to help elderly and vulnerable people who are faced with choosing between paying the bills and putting food on the table, and those who are socially isolated.”
