A young Taranaki family is having to start again after a fire caused by an electric blanket destroyed their home

Homeowner Brittany Nawani, said "the blanket was on for a matter of minutes before catching fire and spreading quite fast."

She will no longer be using electric blankets and hoped others learned from their tragedy.

Advice to electric blanket owners is to replace them every five years, but if damage such as cracked wires or failing controller is showing, the blanket should be replaced immediately.

It’s not easy growing up in New Zealand today. The Salvation Army and The Warehouse Group know that life can be tough for young people, and that's why we teamed up to develop an innovative and effective youth development programme called ‘Aspire’.

Launched in 2015, thanks to seed funding received from The Warehouse Group's 2014 Suppliers Dinner and ongoing funding support from Warehouse Stationery, Aspire has helped more than 1000 young people develop the skills, confidence, knowledge and networks they need to successfully address challenges and achieve their goals.

From now until the end of July, donations from Warehouse Stationery customers will help support hundreds of at-risk teens who aspire to change their lives.

Find out more about the programme and how to donate here: www.thewarehousegroup.co.nz...
