Our older generation have never needed us more. Here's how you're helping Age UK be there during this national crisis.
We’ve seen an unprecedented increase in the number of vulnerable older people needing our help. This is how we’re responding:
David and his wife have been struggling to get shopping delivered to them. Fortunately, their local Age UK was able to help. “I’m not sure that people realise how difficult it is for some of us to get normal supermarket deliveries. Age UK’s delivery is important to us. They’ve been absolutely wonderful.”
沙巴体育appJoyce is a full time carer for her husband, David, after he had a severe stroke. Since the coronavirus outbreak, David has been unable to visit his day care sessions, which means that Joyce isn’t getting a break. Lonely and worried, Joyce has been thankful that we are there for her to talk to.
沙巴体育appAudrey has been really grateful for the support she's received from her local Age UK, which has included health and wellbeing parcels. “It’s been hard not seeing my friends, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, but Age UK have helped make me feel better. The parcels were absolutely lovely, thank you so much.”
There are so many ways to raise money for Age UK from home! Here are a few of our favourites.
沙巴体育appThis will pass. In the meantime we all care about you and hopefully we will all do what we can to make things better. You looked after us when we were young, now it’s our turn to look after you.
I gave to Age UK because I care about the quality of life of the elderly population. I want every elderly person to know they are loved and valued.
沙巴体育appMy mother use to attend one of Age UK's centres twice a week and even now during Covid-19 she is still receiving their support.
沙巴体育appWe gave to Age UK to support the valuable work you do and because many of us have elderly relatives who may need such support.
So thankful that I am able to help a little. Carry on the good work.
沙巴体育appI gave to Age UK because of the great work they do helping the elderly. I’ve run the Age UK Leeds Abbey Dash many times and I hope this will be back in 2021.
沙巴体育app We desperately need more support to keep being there for older people in need.
