Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Cyril Flint Befrienders is a Greater Manchester based
charity whose aim it is to reduce loneliness and social isolation in older
people, by offering a free befriending service. With research suggesting
loneliness is as harmful to your health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day, we
really need to take action to combat loneliness in our communities.

As a charity, they are dependent on donations, grants and
fundraising to help them to continue to operate and to reach more lonely or
isolated older people.

We have entered Cyril Flint Befrienders’ first ever
Accumulator Challenge and need your support! The Charity has given every group
a starting fund of £50 and the challenge is to turn this into as much money for
the charity as possible in 6 months! The competition runs 1st April –
30th September 2017 and at the end of the six months, winners will
be announced for:

  • Most Funds Raised

  • Most Innovative Idea

  • Best Publicity Piece

Please dig deep and help our team to come out as winners!
