BOBBLE Day will soon be here - and the charity behind the fund-raiser is urging readers to get involved.

Age UK, in Market Place, Grantham, is selling Bobbles at £1, bright orange creations to pin on your clothing. The idea is to wear the fun Bobbles on Friday, February 11, to show your support for the charity.

Age UK spokesman Angelene Darbyshire said: “Bobble Day is a fund-raising day organised to highlight the fact that during the winter over 250 older people die needlessly everyday in the UK as a result of the cold.

“All funds raised will go towards Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign.”

Age UK offers advice to the elderly on topics such as help with heating costs, nutritional meals and any benefits which are available. A number of practical services are also offered.
