Every Winter thousands of elderly people die as a result of the cold. And with rising energy bills pensioners are often forced to turn off their heating or go without a hot meal.
But this year those who can afford it are being encouraged to donate their Winter Fuel Payment, so it can be used to help those struggling to survive during winter.
You can donate to the Surviving Winter Appeal through Birmingham and Black Country Community Foundation Website www.bbccf.org.uk
