Vote for us

Published on 31 March 2022 01:58 PM

We’re bidding for a cash boost from the Tesco Community Grants initiative. We are in with a chance of securing a grant of up to £1,500, £1,000 and £500 if people vote for us while they shop in Tesco stores!

Three groups in every community have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers like you can help us. Voting is open in all Tesco stores in April, May and June and customers can cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out each time they shop. It couldn’t be simpler!

We exist to promote the wellbeing of older people in the City of Westminster and to help them lead independent, fulfilling lives for as long as possible. We focus on services that reduce financial hardship, disadvantage and social isolation for older people in our local community. Our services include Befriending, Information & Advice, Complex Needs Support, Older Volunteering opportunities, Community Inclusion Activities & Outings and Digital Inclusion support.

Some of our recent clients have said:

“A big ‘Thank You’ to you and your team. You have all done a tremendous job throughout the year and it’s greatly appreciated.”

“When I retired three years ago, I became cut off and started to feel low. That’s when I turned to Age UK Westminster’s Befriending service. I’ve been seeing J every week since Christmas 2018 and it’s made such a big difference to my life. I really look forward to J’s visit, it’s a real booster for me.”

“Thank you so much for organising such wonderful and stimulating events.”

So if you love what we do and you shop in Westminster, please consider dropping a token in for us every time you leave the checkout!
