A BARNSLEY charity hosted a ‘Winter Warmth’ event in conjunction with a local church on Wednesday.
Age UK, based on Eldon Street in the town centre, hosted the event at Christ Church, Ardsley, for people to enjoy some company.
Chief executive of Age UK Barnsley, Debby Bunn, said: “We know how challenging this winter is going to be for the older people in Barnsley, with some facing the impossible choice between eating and heating.
“We have a wide range of services available to support those in greatest need, and I would urge anyone who is struggling to get in touch with us on 776820.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
