Cash Hand Out To Keep Elderly Warm

£450,000 is being handed out to help elderly people stay warm in Dorset this winter.

Dorchester's Age UK has teamed up with energy firm E.ON who're providing the pay-outs.

The funding is in addition to the government's Cold Weather Payment, that's designed to offer some financial relief to people as they get older.

Last year's record winter raised concerns over vulnerable people struggling to heat their homes.
