HELP US TO PROVIDE MORE MEALS
With soaring fuel costs and rising food prices, that is the decision facing millions of pensioners this winter living in fuel poverty and dependent of pension credit.
In the Greater Dartmoor area approximately 15% of all people over the age 65+ are living in poverty.
That equates to over 10,000 people, many of these pensioners will face making tough decisions about whether to pay for heating or food this winter
Over the past 3 years over 500 people have been admitted to Devon hospitals with malnutrition, that is 3 time the national average. Treating malnourished patients is estimated to cost health services £8891.81 per person .
There comes a point where you just can't put more clothes on!
We are trying to raise £6500 to provide 1000, hot nutritious meals, delivered by the Royal Voluntary Service to those elderly and vulnerable residents living in our community, that simply cannot afford to eat.
By donating the cost of a dinner, every single penny will go to providing meals for the vulnerable elderly residents in our communities.
Donate Your Dinner and make sure that an elderly person does not go hungry this winter.
