EVERYONE CAN LEAVE A LEGACY
PLEASE HELP US TO HELP LOCAL PEOPLE IN WEYBRIDGE
Leaving a gift to the Charity in your will – or making a donation now – can make a huge difference to the needy of Weybridge
Weybridge Charity helps local residents. Every penny donated is spent on giving cash, food or essential household equipment or furniture to people on very low incomes within Weybridge.
It may be a surprise to learn that there are a lot of local households in need, but a significant proportion of Weybridge residents do suffer from real poverty and severely limited prospects. You can help make a difference.
Being poor in this particularly affluent area creates a number of problems. Low-income families can often feel isolated and lose self-esteem. They see a future of mounting debt. The stress of constantly trying to make ends meet can lead to health problems, and lower life expectancy. It can sometimes even lead to domestic abuse.
The difference in living standards between the low-income earners and average/high income earners in Weybridge is often starkly apparent, making the situation of the have-nots particularly stressful.
Our Charity tries to take some of the pressure away from these families by giving food vouchers (often when the options are to pay an urgent bill or to buy food) or by providing basic kitchen equipment, a bed or some other essential furniture which they would otherwise find impossible to obtain.
Weybridge has over 830 residents in receipt of housing benefit and the problem of inequality is certainly not limited to some of those individuals. The problem is far more widespread.
Your donation would help our Charity to increase the level of aid we are currently able to offer those residents in severe financial need. 100% of all donations received are spent giving cash or goods to those in need in the Weybridge area.
Thank you for your generous support.
