Members of Davys Street Residents’ Association in Carrick have distributed ‘Keep Warm’ packs to vulnerable members of the community.

The Public Health Agency’s ‘Keep Warm’ scheme aims to provide support for those most at risk who are unable to adequately heat their homes this winter, including older people, children, and those with chronic illnesses or disabilities made worse in cold weather.

The Association is encouraging residents to get in touch if they know of anyone in the area may be in need or qualify for a ‘Keep Warm’ package, while they are available.

They can be contacted by phoning 028 9335 1776 and asking for Al or Elaine, or contacting any committee member.
