No one should have no one on Christmas Day 

Age UK Lambeth needs your support to provide a Christmas Dinner for the most isolated older people.

On Christmas Day volunteers from Age UK Lambeth will be cooking up turkey and all the trimmings and providing dinner, gifts and entertainment for 40 of the most socially isolated older people across the borough of Lambeth at their community hub Vida’s. We will also be providing a further 20 meals for those who would prefer to be at home and we need your help to make it happen. 

Could you make a donation to provide a Christmas Lunch for a lonely older person?  

You can donate any amount online at https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/auklambeth/nooneshouldhavenoone2017 or by texting AUKL17 £4 to 70070 to donate £4. 

Winter and the festive season can be tough for older people, it gets dark early, the bad weather can make people worried to go out and as so much of the focus in the media is on family time, you can feel especially isolated if you don’t have any family nearby. In fact half a million older people across the UK will spend Christmas Day alone.  

· 200,000 older people say they haven't had a conversation with friends or family for a month. 

· 3.9 million older people agree the television is their main form of company. 

· Loneliness can be as harmful for our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. 

The money raised from the campaign will be also used for a Christmas party for our clients and for MySocial. MySocial is our service providing a calendar of fun events all year round for older people to meet new friends, stay active and enjoy their lives.  

There are also opportunities for businesses and volunteers to get involved. If you are local business who would like to find out about sponsorship opportunities then please email Claire.nethersole@ageuklambeth.org.uk . If you would like to volunteer please email bev@ageuklambeth.org
