Make sure you remember older people this St David’s Day by wearing an Age Cymru Leek.

It is available from our shops and offices across Wales.

Our Director of Income Resources Richard Nicholls says:

“There are more than 560,000 people who are aged 65 or over in Wales.

“Of these, 1 in 3 of lives alone; 100,000 are poor and 42 per cent of pensioner households cannot afford to keep their homes warm.

“Age Cymru works to improve the lives of older people by providing practical advice and services, but we need the public’s support to allow us to continue to do this.

“Please help us by buying and wearing an Age Cymru Leek this St David’s Day.”
