There's more to me campaign

Local, independent charity, Suffolk Age UK is celebrating the launch of their recent campaign “There’s More To Me” with a partnership with local transport provider Suffolk Norse.  The campaign was donated to the charity by Southwold based creative agency Spring, and has been launched with a short film, which can be viewed at www.ageuk.org/suffolk.  The film stars were all local older people who donated their time and energies to support the charity.
Providers of the majority of the school transport service for Suffolk, Suffolk Norse have donated the advertising space on the back of six of their school buses to the charity to help promote the new campaign, which centres around encouraging conversation between people of all ages, and asking simple questions which help older people feel more valued and recognised.
A large part of the campaign will focus around engagement with local schools, with a fundraising element to the project, to raise funds to support an additional 200 older people this year with core services such as befriending, information & advice, benefits checks and attendance at a lunch club or dementia support group.
Jo Reeder, Fundraiser for Suffolk Age UK said “This campaign is an exciting project for everyone involved, and we are looking forward to capturing the memories, thoughts and experiences of many older people around the county and encouraging conversations.”
