Fred

Donate to help people like Fred

Fred's local Age UK helped him regain his taste for life. That's only possible with your support.

Fred’s wife had always done the cooking. She’d even left meals in the freezer, but after she died Fred couldn’t face eating them. It was just too painful.  

Fred started attending Age UK Barnet's cookery class. He was quiet at first.

But one day, while the group was eating what they’d learn to make that day, Fred began to open up. 

Now, he's learning new skills that are helping home adapt to life without his wife. And he has friends who are there to support him.
