Do you know a volunteer, or a charity in the Trimley area, that has never won an award for the work they do? A group that has helped support you, or someone you know, on the road to recovery, or an individual or voluntary organisation that has united your community?  The High Sheriff of Suffolk, Roz Eminson, has launched the 2020 High Sheriff’s Awards and is calling for entries for The High Sheriff’s Awards and we could have a winner!  They are designed to reward the volunteers, charities and community groups in Suffolk who devote their time and energy to improve the communities in which they live and work, to make Suffolk a better and safer place to live. Nominations are now open for the following award categories and priority in all categories will be given to those who have not previously been recognised.

The Surviving Winter Appeal Saves Lives!

In Suffolk last year, 310 vulnerable people died from causes attributed to cold and poor living conditions, and it is estimated that 43,330 households in Suffolk live in fuel poverty. The Surviving Winter Campaign is led by the Suffolk Community Foundation with the East Anglian Daily Times, Citizens Advice Bureau and other partner charities and businesses. Last year, the Suffolk Surviving Winter Campaign heated over 700 homes of older vulnerable people.

This year’s campaign will be launched in early November.  Together we will achieve even greater success if we encourage people in the Trimleys and surrounding area, who need help, to contact their local  Citizens Advice Bureau for assistance with their fuel bills. Also, for those who can afford it, the  donation of all or part of their Winter Fuel Payment to help another. To donate to the campaign visit www.suffolkcf.org.uk or call 01473 602602. Anyone can make a donation if they would like to.

 “Nextdoor is a private social network where neighbours work together to build stronger, safer, happier communities, all over the world”.  There is already a trimley St Mary group for you to join.
