Boost of £30K to Suffolk’s Surviving Winter Appeal

 

A £30,000 match funding pledge by Hopkins Homes in Woodbridge has boosted Suffolk’s Surviving Winter appeal. The company will use money from its £150,000 Hopkins Winter Crisis Fund. A further £20,000 will be allocated by Hopkins as a small grants fund, which will be distributed through outreach charities such as Food bank.

 

Surviving Winter is run by Suffolk Community Foundation. The campaign aims to help vulnerable people with the cost of heating their homes over winter. Surviving Winter does this by asking people to donate their winter fuel payment if they are able to or give money to the appeal. This is then redistributed to people who need help with heating their homes.

 

Tim Holder, head of public affairs at Suffolk Community Foundation told the EADT ‘Hopkins Homes’ support represents the largest single donation ever to Surviving Winter…Now all we need is for Suffolk people to step up and take advantage of Hopkins Homes’ generosity. Every penny they give will be doubled up to a value of £30,000….This is an incredible opportunity and will make a very real difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged older members of our communities.’
