raised of £500 target by 4 supporters

    Weʼve raised £95 to extend the life of the Leicester Western Ward Linking Lives project, a befriending service. We are working to Reduce loneliness in our ward.

    Funded on Thursday, 16th May 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    There are so many lonely older people in the UK, our ward is in the top 0.4% or loneliest areas for older people. We want to reduce loneliness and isolation. One friendship at a time.
    And so far, we are. We had a lady last week say because of her visit "she felt alive again" another lady wanted to laugh again and has laughed regularly with her volunteer visitor.
    Our service is free for how can you put a price on friendship, but unfortunately our service has running costs, costs to recruit and train and monitor volunteers and costs to accepting, risk assessing and visiting our referrals. These costs need covering so let's start with a just giving page and let's cover the cost of reducing loneliness and isolation in Leicester's Western Ward together.
