A SCHEME is celebrating after helping 75,000 vulnerable residents across Merseyside.

Many people in Halton have benefitted from the npower Health Through Warmth project.

Elaine Midwinter, scheme manager, said: “The aim of the scheme is to help vulnerable people whose health is made worse by living in a cold home.

“We’re delighted to have reached such a major milestone.”
