2018 sees Age UK Suffolk celebrate its 70th year as a local, independent charity.
To recognise this achievement, we have invited local businesses to pledge their support and become a “Platinum Friend”. Our aim is to work with 70 new businesses in 2018, helping us to ensure that vital services and support will be available to older people in Suffolk for many years to come.
All of the businesses detailed below, have committed to support us this year and will be joining us in a celebratory business event on 31st January 2019 at Wherstead Park.
