Urgent appeal to bring relief to the most vulnerable older people in our city

An Update:
As of the 30th June 2020 we have delivered 2,542 essential food parcels to people who are self-isolating and unable to safely access essential food items themselves. This has been possible thanks to hundreds of incredibly generous donations to this urgent fundraising appeal and so many incredible people who have volunteered to drive and deliver these parcels. Thank You so much.

But there are still hundreds of people still in need of these parcels moving forward. So, if you are able to donate, whether that's 50p or £50, it all helps us support more people in need.


Appeal Info
Age UK Sheffield COVID-19 Food and medication delivery service for older people most at risk.

In March when the crisis began, Age UK Sheffield launched an urgent campaign to raise £50,000 to ensure older people who are isolated during the coronavirus outbreak to receive all the food and medication they need to survive.

Age UK Sheffield Chief Executive, Steve Chu, said: “We are already getting reports of older people who are unable to receive their food and medication, and have started some emergency support. But it seems that older people may be asked to stay indoors for weeks or months, and we need to ensure they get the food and medication they need to survive through this frightening period.

“I am so grateful to Westfield Health for their generosity in getting this campaign under way. Now I am urging local people to donate whatever they can to help us meet people’s needs over the coming months.”
