Romania, as many of you know, has hot summers with temperatures up to 35 degrees Celsius. The winters are a different story with the possibility of snow and minus temperatures from October through to April. With the temperature getting down to as cold as minus 20 degrees and snow storms which last for weeks.
The house where the handicapped adults live is supplied by the town heating system. It costs in the region of £700 a year to heat the house, and this only heats 3 of the 7 radiators.
In 2020, due to the Corona Virus we need to make some changes that will make Nightingales more economical over the next five years. One way is to reduce the heating bill. The instalment of a pellet central heating system would bring the cost down annually to £400, and heat all 7 radiators!
The money raised will also go towards heating the day centre that the charity runs for young girls at risk of being involved in human trafficking, the centre costs £1800 a year to heat.
