Bobble Day for Age UK

SUDBURY entertainer and raconteur Charlie Haylock has helped launched an appeal to keep older people warm this winter.

Charlie, who is well-known for his books about Suffolk life, launched a campaign by Age UK Suffolk to highlight the plight of vulnerable older people.

It is staging a Bobble Day on February 10 and wants people to wear a bobble hat, or to make a bobble, to raise money for charity.

Charlie said: “If you are struggling to keep warm this winter, Age UK Suffolk is there to help.

“Its staff are great, so just contact them, whether you are concerned about your fuel bills, need advice about insulation or are struggling a bit at home.”
