Christmas vouchers have been given by Cottenham Charities for many years to help individuals and families on low income to meet the cost of Christmas. Cottenham Charities and the Fitzwilliam Charity provide the funds for the scheme. Residents of the Parish in receipt of Income Support, Incapacity Benefit, Employment and Support Allowance, Pension Credit, Housing Benefit or Universal Credit are eligible but we are not able to consider those receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance.
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from a little help this Christmas, application forms will be available from Cottenham Post Office or online at www.cottenhamcharities.co.uk from Monday 25th November and must be returned by Wednesday 11th December. Proof of eligibility will be required and only one application per household can be accepted.
Additionally, applications for grants for essential household or disability items can also be considered by Cottenham Charities throughout the year. To apply please contact Malcolm Dee, Secretary, on 01954 250387
