Our donation to Age UK concludes our three Days of Giving.
December Giving Final Day - Supporting Age UK who are there when vulnerable and lonely eldery people need them
For many older people, day-to-day tasks that many of us take for granted – like getting dressed, using the toilet, making a meal, or getting to the shops – can be almost impossible without help. Older people should be able to live well, not just survive, and the right care and support can help them do this.
Right now, 1.4 million older people are left to struggle each day without support. Age UK helps to ensure that they can access the care that will help them stay safe and healthy, both physically and mentally.
The rapid pace of technology makes socialising in the physical world even more difficult for an entire generation.
Age UK provides help to so many people. Using a mixture of support networks vulnerable or lonely elderly are supported and given advice when they need it most.
As we witness a world with an ever-increasing population the importance of having a great support network is literally becoming greater every year. Amidst a rapidly changing environment, largely driven by the extraordinary advance of technology, an entire generation is at risk of being left behind as the rest of the world moves forward into a new and previously unknown way of socialising.
It is our pleasure to have been able to support Age UK at this time of the year, when many of our elderly are in need of a friendly face or voice.
We hope that our donation can make the cold and often lonely winter months more comfortable in some way for at least some of our aging population.
As we publish this it is almost time to close the office for Christmas. It has been a wonderful week, in which we were able to support three, rather than our usual one, charities. The three causes we supported were the World Land Trusts’ purchase of reservation land to protect the Jaguar, the homeless Christmas help given by the Salvation Army and of course today was for the great work done by Age UK.
We have allot to look forward to in the coming year and hope that our donations will go some way towards giving others something to look forward to as well.
