Children in Fenland could help their families save hundreds of pounds on their winter energy bills by logging on to a new website.

Circle Housing Roddons has launched the family fun website after learning that 2.5 million British households planned to take out a loan last winter to pay for their energy bills.

The affordable housing provider now hopes to show families how they can save more than £200 a year by inspiring children aged 10 and under to make simple energy saving changes.

Helen Wilson, head of energy and green strategy at Circle Housing said: “Many families struggle to afford to keep their homes warm during the winter. Our intention is to inspire a new generation of energy saving superheroes by helping children understand the basics of energy saving and showing exactly how they can make a difference.

“We hope this will empower more of our customers to make small changes that could have a big impact on their energy bills.”
