Staying warm and healthy in the cold winter is something most of us take for granted. However, when the idea of those more fortunate Òhanding onÓ their winter fuel payments to local, vulnerable people was presented, I wanted to pledge my payment to the ÒSurviving Winter AppealÓ. It would be great to think that all those people who are in a position to forego part or all of their own winter fuel payment could join this great scheme and spread a little warmth.
