Four Bristol friends with no previous rowing experience are set to take on the world’s toughest rowing challenge across the Atlantic Ocean to raise money for Movember.
The team, Nuts over the Atlantic, will face 40 days of storms, hunger and sleep deprivation, as they make the 3000 mile journey from La Gomera to Antigua.
Contactless donation point installed at Bristol Energy Hub to help fund Bristol’s night shelters
It’s the third donation station in the city, allowing passers-by to donate £2 directly to the SOS appeal simply by touching their bank card to the stations.
Today we invited charities, businesses and organisations from across Bristol to discuss how we can work together to tackle fuel poverty in Bristol. Why? Because it affects 1 in 8 households in the city. And thousands of people are suffering needlessly.
Why did people complain to Bristol Energy in Q3 2017 and what are we doing about it?
Estimated Readings – 6.83%
• While Bristol Energy provides a variety of ways for customers to submit meter readings, we’ve realised that it’s not always clear how and when to do so. This has resulted in customers being disappointed upon receiving estimated bills.
It's estimated that 4 million people live in fuel poverty in the UK.1 Every winter, they’re faced with the choice between heating their homes and eating a cooked meal.
In Bristol the problem is severe, affecting around 25,000 households (that’s more than 1 in 8 households).2
We're proud to be the Solar Panel Sponsor for team Nuts Over The Atlantic’s boat on their incredible challenge across the Atlantic.
And what’s more, if you quote the code “NUTS” when you switch, we’ll donate up to £30* to Team Nuts’ charity, the Movember Foundation.
Nuts Over The Atlantic are a local Bristol team of four friends taking part in the 2017 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, a 3,000 mile rowing race across the ocean.
Today could mark the end of the great energy rip-off.
The Government has drafted a bill to push forward a price cap, protecting millions of customers from overpriced standard variable deals. These are the prices that customers pay when their fixed deal comes to an end, and can be £300 more per year than the cheapest available deal.
Millions of people have been paying too much, for too long, simply to keep their families warm.
And the energy market has been broken for too long.
