Following the late Queen’s passing, numerous sympathy letters and monetary gifts were sent to the Royal Family. According to royal sources, the money is currently being distributed to those who are unable to pay for their houses’ heat, light, and electricity.
The money contributed when the late Queen passed away in September will be given to the Fuel Bank Foundation, albeit Buckingham Palace has not disclosed the amount. The organization offers coupons for gas and electricity pre-payment meters.
The charity’s executive director, Matthew Cole, claimed it will offer relief from the “energy and cost of living crises.”
Along with providing urgent assistance by filling off gas and electricity meters, the charity also offers guidance on bills and ways to lower the likelihood of running out of energy.
These escalating worries about the expense of life have been reflected in royal visits and charitable endeavours.
A community kitchen and food bank in Harrow that serves more than 10,000 people each week was visited by King Charles last week. While there, he learned of the efforts made by volunteers to assist the area’s residents who were unable to purchase food.
In an initiative run by the Felix Project charity earlier this month, the King gave money to buy hundreds of refrigerators and freezers for food banks so they could use donated food more effectively.
According to the most recent official statistics from the House of Commons library, which are for 2020, 13% of English families are classified as “fuel poor,” compared to 25% in Scotland, 12% in Wales, and 18% in Northern Ireland.
The Fuel Bank Foundation collaborates with food banks and other neighbourhood organizations and has helped 650,000 individuals since it was founded seven years ago.
The charity’s director, Mr. Cole, praised the “generous donation,” which was topped up by a personal gift from the King.
