An oil buying club is launching to help Cornish families struggling to heat their homes.

It is claimed a fifth of Duchy households are in fuel poverty because of rising bills.

Now a Camborne charity is offering us the chance to register online in a bid to cut costs.  

Alec Rice from Community Energy Plus says it is a growing problem.

"People are actually coming to the stage where they have to make choices about what they spend their money on, whether they actually pay to heat the house or to actually feed themselves sometimes. People simply self disconnect. Alot of that can be heating itself, so they go without heating."

"We're asking everybody in Cornwall who's on oil to consider joining the club. When we get some really big figures and we can order some great amounts, then we should be able to get a better price for them, and also it means that we're going to do the work for them."

See how you can join the club here.
