Wenceslas Project

We know of many people who just can't keep warm during the winter months

Just like Good King Wenceslas who travelled through the winter snow to ensure that people were not without fuel to keep warm, Fareham Lions, along with Citizens Advice Fareham, would like to ensure that local people and families are able to stay warm during the cold winter months, without worry about paying their energy bills.

If you can go without part or all of your Winter Fuel Allowance then please pass on your winter payment to us in the certain knowledge that we will ensure it goes directly to the fuel needy.

You can donate to us even if you do not receive the Winter Fuel Allowance and want to help our a local family.

Winter Fuel Allowance

We work with local agencies within Fareham and Gosport, especially Citizens Advice Fareham, Citizens Advice Gosport, One Community Fareham, Community Action Fareham, Gosport Voluntary Action to ensure we target those in need.

Fareham Lions Club follow a format adopted by other Lions Clubs, whereby donations and Winter Fuel Allowances – in full or partial payments – are held in a fund to pay fuel charges for local families that are in debt to their energy suppliers.

Citizens Advice Fareham will investigate and vet all claimants. Payments are made direct to the energy provider, not to the individual families.
