Age UK in Kensington and Chelsea is proud to be leading a major Community Response to ensure that older people in the Borough who need it most get ongoing food, basic essentials and social connection. We are setting up a number of distribution centres so that food and essentials can be delivered by a brilliant and dedicated network of volunteers. We need to make sure that we can keep all this running as long as necessary, and that we have enough supplies to meet huge need.
Please help if you can so that we can be there for isolated elders in Kensington and Chelsea.

An easy way support older people during these uncertain times
In March, we took the difficult but essential decision to minimise face to face contact in our services. While we’ve all been doing brilliantly staying at home and following the recommended social distancing guidelines, this has had a big impact on the most vulnerable and isolated older people in Kensington & Chelsea.
Although a lot of our services events and activities have moved online, the majority of our regular fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed which has had a big effect on our income. However, there’s still an easy way to support the work we do for the over 55s in the community from the comfort and safety of your own home thanks to our partnership with online fundraising platform Savoo.co.uk. When you fundraise through Savoo you’ll raise uncapped donations for us at no extra cost to you.
What is Savoo.co.uk?
Savoo is a free to use online fundraising and money saving platform. It’s home to a huge selection of the latest online voucher codes and deals for all your favorite retailers like Boots and John Lewis.
For every discount code or deal you use to save money shopping online at any brand, you’ll raise a free donation for Age UK Kensington & Chelsea. Just make sure you create a free Savoo account first and choose Age UK Kensington & Chelsea as your chosen charity to support.
Vamp up your summer wardrobe for less, treat the kids to a new bike with a Halfords voucher code, or save money on some new tech with an Argos discount code all while raising free funds for a vital cause. Once your order goes through, Savoo donates 50% of the commission straight to us for every code you use. Your donation is completely free (aside from the things in your basket) - it’s that simple.
Watch your donations pile up in your Savoo account with every voucher you use to save on your online shopping. At no extra cost or effort to you, it’s an easy way to help us improve the lives of older adults within the community during their time of need.
How will my donations help?
As an independent, local charity your donations will go directly towards improving the lives of older people in our community. You will be helping us to make sure that the most vulneranle and isolated older people, who often have no other form of support, will receive ongoing food, basic essentials and most importantly, social connection. A £10 donation could pay for the ongoing delivery of essential basic needs to local older people which can be a lifeline. Your support will help us to continue to be there for older people in our community, now – when we are needed most.
