Age UK ‘Bobble Day’

Winter months have a devastating impact on many older people and that’s why Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees is inviting you to join thousands of others across the UK raising money for Age UK’s Bobble Day on Friday 8th February 2013.Capture

Any money that you raise will help Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees warm up our older people. We help by:
• Providing information guides and tips on how to stay warm in your home
• Providing thermometers, so older people know when to turn on your heating
• Offering benefits checks and advice about winter benefits
• Administering grants to those in need of winter warmth . Click here to find out more.

Wear it Woolly
We are asking everyone to come to work, your local community venue or even school on Friday 8th February dressed in anything woolly. Be it a funny jumper, a sherpa hat or a colourful scarf. Each person pays £2 to take part, helping raise money and awareness. Every woolly item worn will help us Warm Up Calderdale and Kirklees and reach out to even more older people.

Warming Morning
Get Bobble Day off to a great start with a Warming Morning. Whether you serve up speciality teas, frothy coffee or hot chocolate with whipped cream, you can ensure your friends and families begin the day with a warm feeling inside. Why stop there? Give your guests home-baked cookies to dunk or serve up bacon butties for breakfast.

Do Bobble Day your own way
There are a whole host of different ways you can help us warm up Britain. So let your imagination run free.
