Lord O'Neill of Clackmannan welcomed over forty people to the ScottishPower Energy People Trust event in central London to mark the Trust's 10th anniversary last week. Those who attended included Members of Parliament and Trustees who met with representatives from sixteen projects funded across Britain.
Each project represented at the event has brought significant savings to many vulnerable households by working closely with families to help them maximise their income, access relevant benefits and become energy efficient. Over the past decade, the Trust has provided over £13 million to 286 fuel poverty projects across Britain, helping more than 1.6 million people. In addition, these projects have helped vulnerable families increase their incomes by over £76 million by reducing household bills and helping to widen access to relevant grants and unclaimed benefits.
Ann Loughrey, Company Secretary and Trustee of the ScottishPower Energy People Trust, said: "We were so pleased to be able to welcome sixteen of our exceptional projects to this event in London to thank them for all their hard work and mark the tenth anniversary of the ScottishPower Energy People Trust."
"We are proud to have been able to play our part in assisting these projects and it was wonderful to hear more from them in person about the achievements and the difference to lives that they have made."
