Q&A
with Ray
Harrington-Vail
Founder of
The Footprint Trust
What is The Footprint Trust?
An Isle of Wight-based
environmental charity,
founded in 2002, dedicated
to working with the Island’s
community to promote the
benefits of sustainable living.
What does The Footprint
Trust do?
The Footprint Trust visits
people in their homes and
give them free guidance on
how to stay warm for less.
The Trust can provide free
insulation and even new
boilers for those in greatest
need. Plus the Footprint Trust
helps people get discounts
on their energy and better
energy deals.
Doesn’t this cost loads of
money?
You will be pleased to
know that the Footprint
Trust spends less than four
per cent of its income on
administration. The charity
doesn’t have any highly-paid
executives, nor does it pay for
professional fund-raisers, or
pester people in the streets
with chuggers!
That sounds great. But
what can I do?
You can get involved in a
little or a big way: reducing
the amount of rubbish you
throw away, driving less and
more carefully, insulating
your home, growing some
of your own food and
installing a water butt. You
could become an Energetic
Champion, join The Footprint
Trust’s Adopt-A-Garden
scheme, become a Cemetery
Warden or a steward at
Riverfest.
Brilliant! Is there anything
else I can do to help?
We’re launching a special
appeal at Riverfest,
encouraging local people to
help other Islanders escape
fuel poverty, by donating
money to help pay for new
energy-efficient boilers. There
are several ways you can give.
To support Footprint Trust local
community projects, and help
Islanders stay warm in their homes,
