Wimbledon Guild winter campaign
The Wimbledon Guild has launched a campaign urging local people who don't need their winter fuel payment to donate it to them.
The Worple Road-based charity provides a range of support to people of all ages who live and work in Merton.
From November to March last winter, the Guild supported local people with payments towards food, clothing and heating bills totalling more than &Pound;2,500.
The charity is expecting to receive more requests for help with winter-related costs than it did last year.
Russell Humphreys Chief Executive said: "This year the economic climate has been difficult for everyone. The money we receive from people donating their winter fuel allowance to us will be used to help local people over the winter months with food, clothing and heating related costs."
If you would like to donate your winter fuel allowance to The Wimbledon Guild you can drop in or post a cheque made payable to The Wimbledon Guild, to Jane Platts at The Wimbledon Guild, Guild House, 30-32 Worple Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 4EF or contact Jane on 020 8946 0735.
