Dreams donates 150 electric blankets to replace faulty models belonging to the public

Bed retailer Dreams is supporting the electricity safety charity, Electrical Safety First, with a donation of 150 electric blankets to replace unsafe models belonging to the public.

The move follows an investigation by consumer champion Which? that tested electric blankets bought from online marketplaces and found that 80% could not be legally sold in the UK.

Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards Service, with funding from Electrical Safety First, will be safety testing electric blankets In Leatherhead and Byfleet on 27 and 28 February. Members of the public will be invited to bring their electric blankets for inspection and any found to be unsafe will be replaced free of charge.

Dreams said its support of the activity forms part of its Force for Good strategy and people-first culture.

Alex Woods, head of risk, health and safety at Dreams, explained: “We know that due to the cost-of-living crisis an increasing number of households are turning to electric blankets to help keep heating costs down during the colder months. Safety is so important, and that’s why we are supporting Electrical Safety First to ensure that households relying on electric blankets this winter can do so with peace of mind.

“We’re grateful to Buckinghamshire and Surrey Trading Standards Service for facilitating this initiative and providing us with an opportunity to support our customers and their communities.”
