Corporate Christmas Appeal 2023

Corporate Christmas Appeal

Can you help us be there for those who need it most this Christmas?

As the days grow shorter and the nights darker, thousands of older people in Scotland are struggling - struggling with facing the agonising choice between staying warm or eating adequately this winter.

Indeed, for many who are already at breaking point, Christmas is an unwelcomed reminder of being just another day spent alone; spent hungry; spent struggling to keep warm.

Every week, we answer hundreds of calls to our helpline from older people who are struggling with the rising cost of living and seeking urgent advice. We also receive calls from older people who are desperately lonely and just want to talk to someone. But demand for our vital services is increasing rapidly.

As Scotland’s national charity for older people, we are trusted by older people, their families, and carers to deliver the best information, advice, care and support. That said, we can only do this with the generosity of our corporate partners.

If your company is inspired to support us in our work with a corporate Christmas donation, a corporate partnership, or any other funding opportunities, we would love to hear from you – every £5 given enables us to provide a friendship call to a lonely older person in need.

Now, more than ever, older people need your help. Please donate today. On behalf of everyone at Age Scotland, we wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Secret Santa - Christmas Donations

Can you make a donation this Christmas in lieu of an office party or Secret Santa gifts?

How you can help:

  • A £10 donation instead of Secret Santa gifts could fund 2 friendship calls to older people this festive season
  • A £50 donation instead of a christmas dinner out with your team could fund 10 friendship calls to lonely and isolated older people who have no one else to talk to
  • A £500 donation instead of a team party could help us be there for 100 older people this Christmas

A call from our friendship line may be the only friendly voice they have heard that week and wraps them in reassurance that someone cares throughout the festive season.
