The Clarence Social life-saving Emergency Winter Fuel Campaign reaches £4,000

19 January 2018

Thank you to the team at The Clarence Social in Cheltenham. They have demonstrated how one small campaign can resonate within a community, with residents donating more than £4,000 for a life-saving Emergency Winter Fuel Campaign to help vulnerable people stay warm during the cold winter months.

Launched in December by local businessman and co-owner of The Clarence Social Steven Jones, the monies raised by the Emergency Winter Fuel Campaign will support P3 clients struggling to afford to heat their homes and stay warm this winter.

He stated: “Being warm is a basic need that most people don’t think twice about – a small contribution can go a long way."

P3’s Operations Director Lindsey Robinson added:

“We are truly overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses and the people who have donated to this campaign. The local community has come together in the most amazing way to support P3’s most vulnerable clients across the county. – This campaign will quite literally save lives.

Together they are urging people to continue to make donations if they can:

“We are still feeling the chill of winter and, for many people in our communities, that means a very real anxiety to ensure that they can afford to stay warm and well. The biggest winter heating bills won’t have arrived yet, so it is important for P3 to be able to reassure people that help is available and donations are still being received.”

Fuel poverty affects many people living in Gloucestershire, both young and old.

Cold homes are twice as likely to cause children to suffer from breathing problems and those in damp and mouldy homes are up to three times more likely to suffer from coughing and respiratory illness. 

So please help us to reach our £5,000 target and keep P3’s client’s safe and warm this winter by donating to the Emergency Winter Fuel Campaign HERE.
