I think you have to be on pension credit to get it or maybe some other benefit but I guess you'll know if you are eligible.

You’ll get a payment if the average temperature in your area is recorded as, or forecast to be, zero degrees celsius or below over 7 consecutive days.

You’ll get £25 for each 7 day period of very cold weather between 1 November and 31 March.
This tells you if your area triggered the payment

Turkey in the winter was clear blue skies, the sun shining and bloody freezing.

We've had taxpayer friendly weather recently. Runs at about 1C day and night with only the occasional foray below freezing.
