Age UK Cheshire has once again spread winter warmth to homes in Chester with the delivery of goods through donations from the Duke of Westminster as part of the Keeping Well in West Cheshire Campaign.
Almost 200 individual winter warmth packs, each containing a cold alarm, a fleece blanket, thermal socks, thermal gloves, soup, mug and a hot water bottle, together with information about how to keep warm and well in winter, were distributed via Snow Angels to older people. Age UK Cheshire also distributed packs via its Supporting You service.
Ken Clemens, CEO of Age UK Cheshire, commented: “Winter can be especially hard for many older people, so we hope that the gift through Age UK Cheshire might help some of the most vulnerable people keep warm this winter.”
