Over the Christmas period, the Buckinghamshire Community Foundation restarted their annual Winter Fuel Payment initiative, through which better off pensioners can donate those payments to people in need. Their initiative has raised nearly £14,000, which is nearly twice as much as last year. I am delighted that the people of Bucks have made this possible.
Amongst other initiatives, the Foundation is looking at new funding schemes with local businesses, such as the Midcounties Co-operative, and they are also working with local projects in various places across the county.
More details and opportunities to help will be announced at the Buckinghamshire Funding Fair at the Clare Foundation on February 16th.
