The Bodmin Rotary’s new 'Winter Warmers' campaign will raise funds to buy electrically heated fleece throws to give to elderly people in Bodmin who might otherwise struggle to stay warm in their homes this winter. These throws are soft, cosy, and cost little to run compared to central heating or other heaters. They can be used as an extra layer on top of bedclothes or to snuggle under when sitting in a chair (as used by the lady in the picture). They are simple to use, lightweight, washable, have different temperature settings, a timer and auto shut off. Using a heated throw can reduce the amount of energy needed to stay warm and safe.

Bodmin Rotary Club’s President (Su Tune) said “We understand that there are almost 200 severely frail elderly people in Bodmin and many more housebound. These people are at the greatest risk of having serious, life threatening, health problems if they cannot stay warm.

We are not recommending that elderly people use the throws instead of using their usual heating systems, but we know that some may be tempted to go without heat to avoid a large bill. We hope that people will donate whatever they can to help us to make a difference and even save a life this winter.”
