Open Christmas

It is with regret that due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, we have taken the decision that we will not be able to hold the Open Christmas event on Christmas Day this year. We are saddened to have to take this course of action and it will be the first time in 38 years that we have not been able to arrange the event. Social distancing measures, the use of transport and both the clients’ and the volunteers’ safety has been taken into account along with Government restrictions and the uncertainty of how the pandemic will develop in the future. It was not an easy decision and we are extremely disappointed that we are unable to run the event as it is one of the highlights of the year. However we are sure that everyone will appreciate the difficulties and will understand why we have had to cancel the event this year. We hope that by giving everyone as much notice as possible, those that usually attend may be able to make other arrangements for Christmas Day.

New Meal Service

During the Coronavirus pandemic we are offering a new meal service with afternoon teas and hot meals for anyone over the age of 50 in Dunton Green, Kemsing, Otford, Riverhead, Seal and Sevenoaks. Click here for New Meal service information.

Please donate to support our vital services

Age UK Sevenoaks and Tonbridge needs your help to support older people during the Coronavirus pandemic. With the Government’s recommendations for social distancing for people over 70, our services have never been more in demand.

We’re working hard to ensure our vital services can continue to safely help the older people who are reaching out to us during these deeply worrying times. We’re determined to be there for older people who need our help and especially those who have no one else to turn to, but we desperately need your support. If you can, please help us by making a donation

Donate

Age UK Sevenoaks and Tonbridge would like to thank everyone who has given up their time or donated during the current pandemic. We are also grateful to all those trust funds and organisations who have supported us over the last few months. All of this has enabled us to continue to support the older people of Sevenoaks, Tonbridge and district during these difficult times.
