Are you one of the fortunate people who receives a winter fuel allowance but doesn't really need it? Abingdon and District CAB Friends is running a pilot project whereby you can donate your fuel allowance to them and it will be passed on by the Citizens Advice Bureau at Abingdon to someone locally who really does need it. You could help prevent a death due to fuel poverty in your local area.  For more information have a look at the information page with downloadable information sheet here.

Christmas Craft Market change of date 12th December 2015
