Friends hugging

No one should have no one at Christmas, yet this year many older people will have no one to share it with.

Help us raise awareness of loneliness this Christmas

There are many ways that you can help us to combat loneliness this Christmas. Fundraising is a fun and rewarding way to help us raise the vital funds we need to help those that need it.

Not only will you have an exciting Christmas event to look forward to, but you'll also be making a huge difference to older people!
