consumption and save money on fuel bills.

October, there will also be a local walk around the area and some
food will be provided over lunchtime.
The fun days are free and are for families with a child under 5
years old or who are expecting a new baby.
Amran Souleiman from Burngreave Children's Centre said: "We're
really looking forward to the fun days in Sheffield. It's a great
opportunity for families to come along and meet other parents from
the local area and to get some useful advice from different
organisations. Particularly coming into the winter, it will be
useful for families to get tips from E.ON on how they can save
energy and money in their homes."
Billie-Jean Poole, Senior Community Relations Officer at E.ON,
said: "It's wonderful to be working with Action for Children and
helping support local families in getting energy fit. Together,
we've developed a programme that looks at the most practical and
effective ways of maintaining an energy efficient home. We are all
really excited about the theme days in Sheffield and urge all local
families to get involved!"
