Can you donate to the Blankety Bank?

In response to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis, we’re launching our ‘Blankety Bank’  – a new campaign to raise money for electric blankets this winter.

At Stretford Community Hub, we’ve seen how the dramatic increase in living costs is hitting local people hard. We know that our neighbours are worried about paying their heating bills and are looking for support to reduce their bills.

That’s why we’re asking people to donate £20 to our Blankety Bank, to buy someone an electric blanket this winter.

Martin Lewis, the money saving expert, says that if you are struggling to pay your bills, you should ‘heat the human, not the house’. Electric blankets are a cost-efficient way of keeping warm, and cheaper than heating a home overnight.  You can read more about his advice on the benefits of electric blankets here.

Please support our local campaign to keep Stretford warm this winter.
