Andy Beeforth, Director of Cumbria Community Foundation, explains the difference the Winter Warmth Fund has made:
"In the first year we raised and distributed a pot of £10,000. Last year our donations quadrupled, bringing in £42,000 which directly helped 433 pensioners in need. We're hoping people will be generous so we can help even more older people this winter."
