So it was timely that Project Shout, the national campaign to raise awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning, got in touch with their summer holiday essentials, and I thought it was a good time to blog about our holiday essentials.
In the past two years, 40 people have been killed or injured by carbon monoxide whilst staying in a tent, caravan, holiday cottage or boat in Britain in the last two years. Packing a carbon monoxide alarm in your suitcase is quick, easy and because it's so compact, your case will have plenty of room for other essentials too. And let's face it, when you have kids, the 'essentials' list is huge isn't it!
Whether you're going abroad or staying in the UK for your next holiday, a carbon monoxide alarm will alert you and your family to CO emisions from boilers, cookers, BBQs and other fuel burning appliances. Taking one with you on holiday is a no-brainer really!
So here are my essentials for our summer holiday in Cornwall, and a great chance for you to win them too.
A beach towel is essential for sunny days at the seaside, I love this soft velour towel from Wilkos which is a great size for kids. Sun block is essential for our fair skinned family and this Garnier Ambre Solaire Very High 50+ travel size sun cream is perfect for throwing in your bag for a day out.
No holiday is complete without toys, and this Project Shout inflatable beach ball and bucket and spade from Wilkos will keep my kids amused for hours.
Finally, the FireAngel CO-9B carbon monoxide alarm is portable, lightweight and perfect for taking to our holiday lodge for safety and peace of mind.
You can try and win these holiday essentials by completing one or more of the Rafflecopter options below. Good luck!
