Wenceslas Project

Please help local families with severe fuel poverty stay warm this winter

Sadly, many local families are in fear that they will not be able to keep warm this winter. You can help them by passing on all or some of your winter fuel payment to us, in the certain knowledge that we will make sure that it all goes directly where it is needed.

We are working with Cranleigh Citizens Advice Bureau, the Foodbank and other organisations to identify and support local families who are struggling to pay their fuel bills.

You can donate all or part of your winter fuel payment, which is made between November and December,  online via CAF Donate, or by cheque made payable to Cranleigh & District Lions Club, endorsed WFP on the back.  Please send to Club Treasurer, Chris Smith, at 30 Waverleigh Road, Cranleigh, Surrey GU6 8BZ.

Of course you don’t have to receive the winter fuel payment to support our Wenceslas project, you can make a donation using the same methods above.

If you are a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid your donation. If you donate online (when available) please tick where it says Please claim gift aid on my donation and CAF Donate will collect the Gift Aid on our behalf.

If you donate by cheque please complete our Gift Aid form and send in with your cheque.

This will be the tenth year that we have run our Wenceslas Project during which time we have collected almost £28,000 to help those living in fuel poverty.  Funds remaining in the account at the end of May 2024, will be transferred to our main charity account to help with general Welfare matters.
