Donate to help people like Jacquie

Jacquie's local Age UK gave her back her love of Christmas. That's only possible with your support.

Jacquie had cared for her mum for 18 years. After she died, Jacquie found herself very alone.  

Jacquie used to love Christmas – cooking a special lunch for herself and her mum. But after her mum’s death, she’d spend the day alone and usually eat just cheese on toast.

Jacquie started coming to the Age UK Lambeth Christmas dinner, where she gets to spend the day with other people and enjoy a proper festive meal.

Jacquie said: “The volunteers are amazing. Last year one of them gave me a homemade lavender bag and I still have it hanging on my door. I’m really looking forward to this year’s dinner already.”
