A donation of £500 was made by our fund to help combat fuel poverty around Calderdale and was matched by CFFC to build this up to £1,000.

Calderdale Cares Lottery are pleased to announce their support for the Halifax Courier and Community Foundation For Calderdales’ #Make It Stop campaign, which is raising awareness and offering solutions to tackle loneliness in older people. The campaign will also help local older people to keep warm this winter in affording escalating fuel bills, insulating homes and providing blankets.

Lottery sales manager Richard Watmough said,

“When we heard about the appeal we immediately wanted to help. We have donated £500 which the Community Foundation For Calderdale have matched pound for pound making the total donation £1,000.”

Steve Duncan, CEO of CFFC said,

“We are really grateful to Calderdale Cares for their donation. If you would like to help us tackle loneliness and social depravation amongst older people in Calderdale please donate via localgiving.com/CFFC where all donations will be matched by us.”
