Last year with the help of our generous friends and supporters we managed to raise £22,314 through the Big Give Christmas Challenge. This money allowed us to fund transport for the older people we work with to get to our social groups and outings throughout the year.
We are participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge for the third time this year. The online match funding campaign is an exciting opportunity for our supporters to double the value of their gift to us.
How the Big Give works
The Big Give will match every pound donation to us up to a total of £12,500. This means, that with your help, we could raise an incredible £25,000.
This year, we are raising money to fund our social and activity groups for older people. We currently run 24 groups across Southwark including gentle chair-based exercise, singing groups and three groups specifically for people living with dementia.
Our groups help to ensure that the older people we work with can age healthily and happily, meet new people and remain part of the local community.
We employ professional tutors wherever necessary to ensure the safety and wellbeing of attendees and would love to introduce a new group in 2019.
The money raised through the Christmas Challenge 2018 will help us to achieve this and enable us to reach more older people feeling lonely or isolated.
How you can help
We would be delighted if you would consider making a donation to Link Age Southwark between midday Tuesday 27th November to midday Tuesday 4th December via BigGive.org.uk (please do not make a donation before this time as it will not be doubled!)
If you are unable to make a donation, it would be wonderful if you could help us spread the word to friends, family and colleagues. Please check out our Facebook and twitter over the week for content to share or retweet.
