On 20th August, a team of 5 of our employees will take to the skies in a special skydiving event at Ellough airfield in Beccles, to raise funds for us in our 70th Anniversary year. With a combined total of 15 years’ service for Age UK Norfolk, Kirsty, Tina, Liz and Michelle want to go the extra mile to help support our work with older people across Norfolk.
Money raised by their skydive could help fund many of our services, including the Telephone Befriending scheme, which offers bright, friendly calls to older people in Norfolk who are feeling lonely and isolated and sometimes may have no contact with other people for up to a month.
Other services include the Pabulum Dementia Cafés, which support over 100 people living with dementia and their carers and the Information and Advice line which took over 11,000 calls last year from people who may not have had anywhere else to turn for help.
If you’d like to support the team, please join us on the day to cheer them on. Alternatively, you can sponsor them via their JustGiving page
