We applied for funding from Trafford Council to run a winter resilience project. This started in December 2021 and runs until the end of March 2022.
So far we have helped a couple of winter warmer events at our allotment with some hot soup. We also purchased some winter warmer bags containing a hot water bottle, thermal mug, thermal hat, gloves and socks and a blanket. These were issued at our model making and craft group and breakfast events. We have so far given out 60 to veterans and their family members.
We are waiting for a new batch of handwarmers to be able to distribute too to help keep people warm during the winter chill!
The Local Energy Advice Partnership team joined us at the breakfast with an information stall too. This is their webiste
