With just over a month of Winter remaining, your help is still vital


As many Ballarat locals worry how they're going to keep the heater on this Winter, we're being asked to give where we can.

 The Ballarat Foundation has this year teamed with 3BA to make the Ballarat Winter Appeal fundraiser more impactful as the cost of living escalates.
Foundation CEO Andrew Eales says the everyday person is now in need, not just those less fortunate.
"With petrol prices and CPI now at historic high levels, rent, food, these are really basic things that we are seeing people being challenged by."
"It's forcing people to make choices about what they are going to spend their money on," Mr Eales said.
