We all know that some people are really struggling financially this year and we are asking for your help. We may all be in the same storm but we are not all in the same boat! For some of us, this winter will be truly dire and we need to look out for each other more than ever. Check on family, friends and neighbours regularly. Some may be embarrassed that they are not coping so we need to be extra observant. Food poverty and fuel poverty go hand in hand so for many that means eating cold food or food that only requires a kettle or a microwave. These options can be very poor nutritionally.
