We have been working with local businesses and organisations to deliver home-horticulture packs to local older people.
Older people in the local community now need our help more than ever! With older people isolating for the forthcoming weeks they will be relying on us for assistance and support. Due to the current situation we have had to cancel or postpone a lot of our fundraising events just when we need more funds to cope with the higher demand on our services. Also our retail shops have now been closed which means a further loss in funds for us. We have set up an Emergency Fundraising Appeal with a target of raising £5000 so that we can continue to run as many services as possible for the elderly people in Derbyshire as well as providing new ones. It is important to look after the mental well being of the older generation that will be unable to leave their homes for some time. One of our aims is to provide a planting kit with seeds and compost that will help to keep people busy and active. As a local charity it means that all the money raised will go directly into supporting the residents of Derby. Age UK Derby and Derbyshire is asking for your help. We would really appreciate any donations you are able to make so that we can provide the services that will be desperately needed at this time.
