King Wenceslas

Don’t wait for the Feast of St Stephen


For the seventh year running, Citizens Advice Epsom & Ewell (CAEE) has teamed up with the
Rotary Clubs of Epsom and Ewell to bring much needed support to those in the borough in need
of help with paying fuel bills this winter.

Project Wenceslas enables those who receive, but do not need, the Government’s Winter Fuel
Payment to donate it to either Rotary Club of Epsom or Rotary Club of Ewell. This money will be
distributed to people in critical need of assistance with energy bills, much needed during the
Cost of Living crisis. All monies donated are redistributed 100% without any deductions for
costs or expenses.

Lisa Davis, CEO, Citizens Advice Epsom & Ewell, said: “With energy bills still the biggest cost-of-
living worry for many individuals and families across the country, this fund is a crucial support
for those in our borough. Please get in touch if either you want to donate your Winter Fuel
Payment, or you are in need of support.”

Since January 2018, CAEE has received nearly £15,000 in donations and made over 170 payments
to families in Epsom & Ewell suffering from fuel poverty.

If you would like to know more about donating your Winter Fuel Payment, please contact via the
websites or and search for Project Wenceslas.
