Inspiring Philanthropy in Somerset

We have been providing a simpler and more effective way for donors to make a lasting difference in Somerset since 2002.

By working together with individuals, families and businesses we increase the impact of local philanthropy, creating more vibrant and inclusive communities in our county.

Generous Surviving Winter supporters in Somerset have already donated over £70,000 to the campaign, which aims to help keep isolated older people who are living in fuel poverty warm and connected this winter. However, fuel prices are on the rise, and an increasing number of older people living in Somerset are worried about how they will heat their homes again this winter. With Christmas just around the corner, most people are starting to think about spending time cozying up in front of the fire with their nearest and dearest, munching on a mince pie and watching the Christmas television. Please spare a thought for your neighbours who won’t have any family members visiting this year and help SCF reach their target of £100,000 to help at least 500 struggling pensioner households heat their homes, stay healthy and stay connected to their communities this winter.

West Country legend Les Davies MBE is the latest local name to back Somerset Community Foundation’s Surviving Winter campaign. And, following a recent television appearance where Les endorsed Surviving Winter on a BBC Points West report with Clinton Rogers, the appeal has had a massive boost - with donations now well on their way to reaching 50 per cent of the £100,000 target!
