High prices from energy suppliers will be highlighted through a new campaign from charity Macmillan Cancer Support that will involve knitting blankets.
The charity plans to encourage more people to take part in its World's Biggest Coffee Morning on September 25th, where fundraisers can have a cup of tea and a cake while they knit together and donate the resulting blankets and patchworks to people living in fuel poverty.
Leading knitting magazine the Knitter is one major campaign supporter and the scheme will help the charity to provide more money to help cancer sufferers who are having trouble heating their homes.
The cheapest way to settle electricity bills is often by arranging direct debit payments on the internet and customers can always switch gas and electricity companies if they find a better offer.
Homeowners are classified as living in fuel poverty when they have to allocate more than ten per cent of their annual income to paying bills from energy suppliers.
