Ledbury’s MP is reminding people they can get help to pay their energy bills from British Gas.

Bill Wiggin, the MP for North Herefordshire, met with the energy supplier last Wednesday (November 8) to discuss the support available to households this winter.

British Gas has committed £100 million to help consumers since the start of the energy crisis.

In particular, the supplier offers grants of up to £1,500 to customers with debt through the British Gas Energy Support Fund.

Even if you are not a customer of British Gas you can seek support from the British Gas Energy Trust.

Sir Bill said: “While the energy price cap has recently been lowered, many households are still struggling with the cost of living.

“I want to make sure people know about the support available to them.

“I encourage anyone who is struggling to speak to their energy supplier and organisations such as the British Gas Energy Trust.”
