The Southern Trust is holding a free electric blanket amnesty service in Portadown early next month.

The event will be held in Portadown Town Hall, Edward Street on Tuesday, November 3 at 11am.

For each blanket surrendered a £15 voucher will be given to clients to use towards the cost of a new blanket.

Anyone wishing to exchange their electric blanket for the voucher should contact the Promoting Wellbeing Team on telephone 028 3834 4973.

Each year electrical appliances including old or faulty electric blankets cause fires.
