British Gas: we won!
By Ruby Earle
They’ve slashed the amount from £5 back to £1. It means customers won’t have to choose between spending their last £5 on heating their home, or putting food on the table.
And it’s thanks to thousands of 38 Degrees members. Last week the 38 Degrees staff team met the CEO of British Gas to hand in the huge petition and share the hundreds of stories from those of us personally affected by this change.
“This is a vital win for the thousands of people affected by British Gas’ decision to raise the minimum pre-pay top-up. I am so thankful to 38 Degrees and the 91,000 people who signed our petition. It would not have been possible without them.”
There is more to do to make sure none of us are forced to choose between heating our homes or feeding our families. But for now, we should be proud of what we have achieved together by standing up to British Gas.
