With the days getting shorter and colder, theres a warning that 300 people die every year in Cumbria because of cold weather. A campaign has been launched today, to keep older people warm this winter.
It's run by the Cumbria Community Foundation. Last year, it raised forty two thousand pounds and helped over four hundred people. This year, the aim is to do even more for those who are struggling to heat their homes. Andy Burn reports.
