Age UK Oxfordshire has asked the Parish Council to inform residents of a campaign entitled Share Your Warmth.
In conjuction with Active Oxfordshire and Sir Muir Gray, the campaign is asking those who receive a Winter fuel allowance that they do not need, to donate some or all of it towards helping support the elderly and vulnerable during the Winter. Although this is the primary audience, if you do not receive a fuel allowance but would like to donate then it would be much appreciated.
Donations, which can be made via the Just Giving website, go towards:
- Supporting housebound people to do specialist seated exercise at home;
- Supporting older people to attend tailored group exercise classes;
- Friendly phone calls to those housebound or lonely.
Two informational videos have been produced to support and explain the campaign:
In the current circumstances with the Covid-19 pandemic, campaigns such as this are more important than ever, and this coming Winter may prove to be very hard for many. If you feel you can, please support the Share Your Warmth campaign.
If you have any queries about the campaign, contact Sophie Dyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
