No one should have no one 2017

No one should have no one

Being loved and cared for is important to all of us, whatever our age. But it’s especially true at Christmas – a time when the companionship and support of friends and family seems to mean even more and loneliness is more keenly felt.

At Age UK Sutton, we believe no one should have no one. Not at Christmas. Not ever. 

We work hard all year round to help older people in Sutton manage the different challenges that growing older brings. From providing information and advice that enables older people to make the most of their later years, to making befriending calls and visits that break through the pall of loneliness and bring joy, we at Age UK Sutton are here for Sutton’s older people every day, all through the year, as we have been for over 25 years. 

As an independent, local charity, we raise all of our own funds to make Sutton a place where later life thrives. 

We need your help to continue providing crucial companionship, advice and support to thousands of older people in Sutton every year, including those who find their lives adversely affected by loneliness, illness or poverty. 

Here is how you can support Age UK Sutton to change the lives of local people all year round:

Make a donation to Age UK Sutton

Age UK Sutton no one should have no one

Just £4 can mean the difference between an older person struggling alone without any help, or being able to turn to us to receive valuable information and advice on options they didn’t know they had.

A £25 gift funds a week of befriending telephone calls to older people who are lonely and isolated, for whom this regular contact can be a lifeline.

You can donate online to Age UK Sutton, give in person at our office or via post
