The event is supported by Hereford & Worcester Fire Service and Worcestershire Carers Association, both organisations will have representatives at the event. In addition to information about the services offered by Age UK Droitwich Spa & District, including information on keeping warm in winter, both organisations will be on hand to give tips and advice.
Where an old blanket fails the test a free replacement blanket will be offered while stocks last.

We are working hard with our partners to make sure that vital information about keeping warm this winter is available to the older members of our community.”
