At Age UK Lambeth we work hard to prevent loneliness year round, but we go the extra mile at Christmas. On Christmas day we provide 65 Christmas dinners for older people (40 at the Vida Walsh centre and 25 delivered to people's homes) who would otherwise be alone.
We also organise social events between Christmas and New Year and into January which be a lonely and difficult time for people.
We need your help to provide these dinners and social events for isolated older people in Lambeth so please give generously today. If we raise more than we need for the Christmas dinners we will use this money to fund MYsocial events helping people to discover friendships, connect with their community and do things that make them happy.
Age UK estimates that at least 25,000 older people in the UK die prematurely from cold weather-related illnesses each year, and therefore tries to ensure that all older people are as prepared as possible for the winter months.
