If you were born on or before 5 November 1953 you could get between £100 and £300 to help you pay your heating bills. This is known as a ‘Winter Fuel Payment’.
This payment is made to everybody regardless of their circumstances, Ashford Lions have launched an appeal to those people fortunate enough not to need this additional money to donate some or all of it to help others in need.
The ‘Wenceslas Christmas Appeal’ is a scheme operated jointly between Ashford Lions and Ashford Borough Citizens Advice to collect donations and distribute this money to those in fuel poverty in Ashford.
If you were born after 5th November 1953 and are struggling to pay for Gas, Electricity, Oil or Water please ask an adviser to complete an application form and you may qualify for assistance
