Warm hearts for freezing homes

Warm hearts for freezing homes

Do you spend at least 10% of your income on fuel costs?  Many households in Wiltshire and Swindon struggle to afford to heat their home over winter and if you older or disabled Wiltshire Community Foundation can give you a grant of £200 to help pay the bills.

Norman from Chippenham told the Foundation that help with his fuel bills “has taken a lot of worry from me, as my electricity bills are so heavy.  I am over 90 years old and have heart trouble.  I have to keep the house warm.  I feel the cold so much.  Your grant has helped me feel comfortable.”
