We all know what it’s like to feel lonely. But imagine being completely alone — every single day.

Our three retail shops accept donations and sell good quality items of soft furnishings, clothing, toys, gifts, books, DVDs, music, jewellery and bric a brac. The shops are wonderful places to browse and hunt for a bargain, or share your spare time and skills by volunteering.
We offer home delivery and collection for larger items, and we can advise you on house clearances. We also sell electrical items and furniture.

A million older people in the UK haven’t spoken to anyone for a month. Help Age UK Tameside and Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC) ‘spread the warmth’ to prevent this happening to local older people.

Come along to Age UK Tameside and TMBC’s FREE Spread the Warmth Tea Party – a chance to have a good time, laugh and get involved to improve the lives of local older people.

The event is about getting people to come together and have fun! There will be a light lunch and afternoon tea as well as a comedian, live entertainment and engaging speakers looking at ‘times gone by’.

Spread the Warmth Tea Party
Wednesday 1st October
12:00 – 4:00
Ashton Town Hall

Free goody bags to the first 100 people.

For more information and to book a place, call Angela on 0161 342 3477.

Advice from Greater Manchester Police (GMP)

Age UK Tameside is proud to work with GMP in providing important safety information to local older people. In addition to a regular column in our newsletter, we provide useful tips from GMP here on our website.

This Quarter's Tip: As Autumn approaches, it gets darker earlier so it’s important to make your home appear occupied. For only a couple of pounds you can buy a 24 hour timer switch at most supermarkets or DIY stores. A small cost to pay for peace of mind.
