Attending our annual Christmas lunch means the world to these elderly people

Many elders on a state pension can’t afford to eat out and rarely get out much. Your donation ensures that they can join in the Christmas festivities . . . dress up in their best clothes . . . and experience fun, companionship and laughter around the table.

Any amount you can give makes a difference.

Active Ageing

What is Active Ageing? And why is it important?

Active Ageing is about refusing to let our age define us. It’s about making the most of life regardless of the passing years. More than that, it’s about taking the necessary steps to safeguard our strength and wellness, so that we can continue to live full, active, healthy and meaningful lives.
