AGE UK Dudley is helping over 60s stay safe and beat the chilly weather with free electric blanket testing.
The organisation is working with Dudley Trading Standards, Dudley Winter Warmth Service and the Dudley Living Well, Feeling Safe Partnership’s Darker Nights Campaign, for two days of tests.
Any blankets failing the test will be replaced free of charge with a new underblanket, the service will be available to residents of Dudley Borough.
The testing events will beat Broadmeadows off Middlepark Road on the Russells Hall Estate and the Elton Centre near St John's Road in Stourbridge on Friday October 25.
Replacement blankets are limited to one per person and booking an appointment is essential due to expected high demand.
