On the day

The difference you make

Today in Leeds, over 30,000 older people are lonely or feel socially isolated. By taking part in the Abbey Dash you are helping us make a crucial difference to the lives of older people.

By going one step further and donating or fundraising for Age UK, you're helping us reach older people who are facing later life alone. Help us make a real difference.

  • £5 helps us take a call from an older person in Leeds who needs our support
  • £10 pays for a regular, friendly visit to an older person who's feeling cut-off and alone
  • £40 could pay for weekly friendship calls for a month to an older person who feels they have no one
