Winter Crisis Fund
Heat or eat is the unpalatable decision facing many households in our region this winter. It’s estimated that 11 per cent of households in England are in fuel poverty but levels in many parts of our region are even higher than this. Considering this, we have announced a major donation of £150,000 to establish the Hopkins Winter Crisis Fund to help keep individuals in East Anglia warm this winter.
Grants will be distributed across Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire through food banks and other partner charities as fuel vouchers or as direct support with payment of fuel bills for those in crisis.
