Poverty Hurts Appeal

Your donation will support children without winter coats or shoes, families living in fuel poverty; and senior citizens who feel forgotten and frightened. The Poverty Hurts Appeal is about bringing businesses and individuals together to fight excess winter deaths, reduce poverty-related misery, and help the one-in-three local children living in poverty in County Durham and Tees Valley.
