AN elderly person’s charity is encouraging everyone in Burton and South Derbyshire to join in and help warm up Britain for Age UK’s Bobble Day.

Bobble Day will be held on Friday, February 8, and will help raise money to make winter warmer for older people who are suffering at this time of year as part of Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign.

The charity is encouraging those taking part to do something ‘warming’ - from digging out wacky woolly jumpers and wearing them to work or school, to holding a tea morning or wrapping up for a bracing winter walk. People simply need to get involved, make a donation and ask others to support them too.

There are also cute, fluffy Age UK bobbles available from Age UK’s shops to brighten up everyone’s outfit on the day.

Further information is available by visiting www.ageuk.org.uk/bobbleday or phoning 020 3033 1725 for a fundraising pack.

People can share details and pictures of their warming antics on Facebook by visiting www.facebook.com/ageuk or on Twitter, using #BobbleDay.
