Will you become a Friend of Age UK Kensington & Chelsea?

Age UK Kensington & Chelsea is part of the national Age UK family, but it is an independent charity and has to raise its own funds. We now offer more services than ever to around 6,000 older people in this borough. The recent increase in demand, coupled with severe cuts in official funding to the charitable sector, mean that voluntary donations are now more vital than ever.
We asked some members of our Friends Group (originally the ‘Supporters’ Group’) what they liked about Age UK K&C. Greta Trevers said, “I am a Supporter because in recent years I have been so helped by all Age UK Kensington & Chelsea’s services and they have made my life much easier”. Norma Peacock told us she enjoys our Friends’ events, as well as taking part at New Horizons, an activities centre in Chelsea run in partnership with Open Age and the Guinness Trust. 
Friends of Age UK K&C make regular donations to the charity and pledge to tell their friends and neighbours about the work that we do. In return they are invited to special get-togethers, receive updates about our work and know that their support makes a huge difference to the lives of their older neighbours and friends. Now we are asking you to help us grow this network so that we can continue to provide companionship, advice, support and care services for thousands of older people in our community. As an independent, local charity, every penny raised in Kensington & Chelsea stays in Kensington & Chelsea.
