Age UK Sutton Thanked in Parliament

Published on 28 October 2020 03:44 PM

We are incredibly proud that Carshalton and Wallington MP Elliot Colburn MP chose to highlight the work of Age UK Sutton and other local organisations during yesterday’s debate. We really care about our work, which we do because we want to make Sutton a truly Age Friendly borough, and this recognition is wonderful to receive.

We will keep on delivering support, innovating, and representing older people’s needs, through Covid and every day.

We are Age UK Sutton.

Here’s a quote from Elliot’s contribution:

“The coronavirus response has not only been about the health and social care sector. It has brought out the best of the entire community in Carshalton and Wallington, and I particularly want to pay tribute to the voluntary sector. Community Action Sutton, Volunteer Centre Sutton and Age UK Sutton have harnessed the good will and the power of hundreds of volunteers. I have met some truly inspirational people as I have joined them to deliver PPE. I thank them for everything that they have done to keep the community going and look after others during the pandemic.”
