Age Concern Winter Warmer Campaign
The weather is changing and in time honoured tradition we are running our Winter Warmth campaign for 2018 / 2019. On Monday 10th December we open our doors to anyone over 60 to have any electric blanket tested for electric safety. If your blanket (UNDER BLANKETS ONLY) fails then we will replace it free of charge. We have 75 single blankets and 25 double blankets and the test and replacement will be on a first come, first served basis until the blankets are gone. Blanket testing commences at 9am at Age Concern Colchester, 63 North Hill, CO1 1PX.
The sad facts are that there is a spike in deaths in January and February due to the inclement weather and we like to do our bit for the community with this programme. It allows you to rest safe in the knowledge that your electric blanket can be used safely. We have goody bags for the first 100 people too and like the blankets once they are gone they are gone. If demand is really high then we will consider a second date in January.
