Age Cymru Sir Gar 'Spread The Warmth' in Asda


Asda's Llanelli superstore played host to Age Cymru Sir Gâr in a wonderful week-long Spread The Warmth and Keep Well This Winter event.
Staff and volunteers from the charity worked alongside volunteers from the Department of Work and Pensions to talk to older people about keeping warm and well during the Spread the Warmth campaign. The staff and volunteers bravely faced the cold to make sure that others didn't have to.
More than 500 winter warmth related information booklets were given out to visitors to the Llanelli store.
As well as inviting people to get their electric blankets checked with the Mid and West Wales Fire Service (Llanelli branch) on March 17, the charity also ran a fun competition for people to guess the length of a scarf which was kindly knitted by the Burry Port Knit and Natter group set up by the charity with a local business in Burry Port.
There are three winners who will be notified this week.
The winner of the competition will receive a double quilt (donated by Asda) an electric blanket (donated by the fire service) and a warm winter fleece to help them beat the cold.
For more information on how to beat winter, save energy and pay less, or about any of Age Cymru Sir Gâr's Big Lottery-funded befriending links groups or other services, please contact Age Cymru Sir Gâr on 01554 784080.
