Spring into Action

What is Spring into Action? 

Running and walking events have always been a great way for us to raise vital funds and we've lost out on donations as these events have all been cancelled in the past year. 

We are determined to still be there for the vulnerable older people which is why we need YOU to get active and take part in Spring into Action!

This year we are asking you to get active in your local area anyway you want, whether that be running, walking or even skipping. By taking part in Spring into Action and getting active everyday in May, you can help us be there for the older people that really need us. 

The difference you'll make

The money you raise will fund vital services like our friendship line. Every week we receive hundreds of calls from older people looking for support. Many are lonely and isolated and just want to hear a friendly voice. We listen, provide comfort and friendship and let them know someone cares. 

No one should feel like they have no one to turn to. If you agree, sign up today to get active and Spring into Action and help us be there for vulnerable older people when they need us most.
