Our Charity of the Year 2018

Posted on 3rd January 2018

We are delighted to announce our Charity of the Year for 2018 is Contact the Elderly.

Supported by a network of volunteers, Contact the Elderly organises monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties for small groups of older people aged 75 and over, who live alone, offering a regular and vital friendship link every month.

Since the 1st tea party held in 1965, Contact the Elderly has supported more than 100,000 lonely older people.

Do you know someone aged 75 or over who lives alone, has little contact with friends or family and finds it difficult to get out and about on their own?

If so, a change of scenery and regular afternoons of conversation and laughter with friends of all ages could be just what they need.

You can also help the charity by hosting tea parties or volunteering as a driver.
