Local businesses are giving generously to support older people in Bath & NE Somerset this Christmas.

Instead of the usual chocolate treat behind your advent calendar door, this calendar means so much more. By sponsoring a door on our calendar, your business can make sure an older person isn't lonely this Christmas.

Some older people may go all week without speaking to another person. Your donation could enable a Befriender to be trained and matched up with someone they can visit every week, becoming close friends and changing their lives.

Maria, told us: “the visit of my befriending lady is truly the highlight of my day. I always look forward to it, as much as we look forward to summer sunshine.”

To see who is behind today's door, take a look at the calendar.

If you would like to sponsor a door yourself, just email fundraising@ageukbanes.co.uk or call 01225 466135 for more information.

Each door costs £100, and every penny will help ensure we are there to support older people over the winter months.
