You are warmly invited to Fuel Poverty Action’s 10th birthday party!
We are bringing members, friends and allies – both past and present – together on Thursday 30 September, 2021, to share stories, achievements, memories from the past, and hope for the future. We will also be launching our Crowdfunder to raise money to keep our part-time worker – Maddy.
As energy prices soar, endangering people’s health and even lives, FPA is needed now more than ever.
WHAT: Fuel Poverty Action’s 10th birthday celebration and Crowdfunder launch
WHEN: 10th Birthday Party 7pm, following our 6.30pm AGM
RSVP: If you are planning on joining, please RSVP to [email protected] with the email subject ‘registration FPA 10th birthday’.
Remarkably, ten years on from its formation in 2011, Fuel Poverty Action is still going, still equally devoted to both poverty elimination and climate goals, and determined to both acknowledge and find ways to overcome contradictions, or apparent contradictions, between the two. It is not common for small grassroots organisations without consistent funding, or support from academic, industry, or NGO institutions, to survive so long. When that happens, like in the case of FPA, it’s worth celebrating!
At the time of a gas crisis, coupled with the price cap being lifted on 1st October, let’s come together to share and reflect on what we have all been doing. We invite you all to come see the inside of what it’s like to campaign on fuel poverty, housing and climate change all together. Take a moment to remember, celebrate and commemorate with us; then gear up to bring this to the ongoing battle.
The final portion of the event will be the launch of our Crowdfunder! Fuel Poverty Action needs more resources to be able to meet the ever-growing demand for our time, accumulated experience and expertise. Help us make sure that we can continue to stand up for families affected by fuel poverty for another ten years by supporting our Crowdfunder launch.
We hope to see many of you there!
-Alexa, Maddy, Ruth, and the rest of the FPA team
