HUNDREDS of people in Taunton called for help with their heating during the summer heatwave.
Despite being the hottest and driest July since 2006, the npower Health Through Warmth scheme took more than 200 referrals from vulnerable people who wanted heating installed or repaired.
Scheme manager Elaine Midwinter said: “We were surprised by the hundreds of homeowners turning to Health Through Warmth for help during such a hot spell.
“However, it's extremely positive that Taunton's residents are looking ahead and preparing their homes for the colder weather.”
Since the scheme was founded in 2000, more than 80,400 vulnerable residents in England and Wales have been referred to npower Health Through Warmth for aid with heating and insulation
