but exhilarating! It was all worth it to raise funds for Age UK Norfolk.”

Older people in our county are faced with a variety of challenges and it may surprise you to know that 1.9 million pensioners are living in poverty in the UK, over 16,000 people are living with dementia in Norfolk and there are 38,000 lonely older people in our county.

In the last year, Age UK Norfolk has experienced a marked increase in the demand for our services supporting older people in Norfolk. Finding and accessing reliable information and advice, making the difficult decision whether to ‘heat or eat’ due to diminished incomes and facing a lonely, isolated future have all been recurring issues for older people in our county.

Our efforts to tackle these issues can’t take effect unless we have the support of everyone in our community. That’s where you come in!

By supporting us, you will join with us in making a difference to the lives of older people in your community and helping us to continue making Norfolk a great place to grow older.
