Surviving Winter crowdfund
We've teamed up with Wokingham United Charities and Berkshire Community Foundation for the Surviving Winter crowdfund.
Thanks to community donations and match funding, more than £50,000 will be going to local organisations to help people with the cost of living in the months ahead.
