AN APPEAL which aims to help keep families warm this winter has been launched.
Bognor Regis Lions has launched the Wenceslas Appeal to help those across the area living in fuel poverty.
The appeal wants to help the worrying number of households which will face a stark choice this winter –heat their home or eat.
The Lions decided to do something to help those in fuel distress but needs some help.
Members want those who are able to donate some or all of the winter fuel allowance they receive from the government and are working with the Citizens Advice Bureau to identify those who need the help.
Money can be donated via the Lions Just Giving account, which is www.justgiving.com/bognorregislions, or cheques, made payable to Bognor Regis Lions Club Wenceslas Appeal, can be sent c/o Wallop LLP, York Chambers, York Road, Bognor Regis, PO21 1LT.
Taxpayers can complete a Gift Aid form which increases the donation’s value.
