Energy scheme will earn residents £50

DEARNE residents are being encouraged to take advantage of a free energy efficiency offer, and pocket £50 in the process.

Through the ‘Share the Warmth’ scheme, people will be given the cash for every person on qualifying benefits they refer to British Gas for free insulation.

The money will be paid once installation is complete and there is no limit on the number of people they can refer. The referred person will also be paid £50 – as well as getting free insulation themselves.

The scheme has been backed in Parliament by Dearne MP John Healey.

Calls – to British Gas on 0800 975 1195 – must be made by the person who would be having the insulation installed and they should give the details of the person who referred them.
