Help the aged
Help the aged is our charity of the year
Throughout 2009, we’re supporting 'Help the Aged' as our charity of the year. With the over 60s population on the increase Help the Aged works to eliminate poverty, isolation and neglect by:
- campaigning to raise public awareness and engage people with the issues facing older people;
- giving advice and support in areas such as finance and health;
- offering community services which help older people continue to live independently and to take part in community life.
Our employees and contractors kicked off the year with a fantastic start raising funds from an online auction, clearing out their cupboards for local Help the Aged charity shops and joining Doreen Mantle, 'One Foot in the Grave' star to launch the partnership at the Jimmy Mac's Day Centre in Hatfield.
We've got a whole variety of activities planned throughout the year and hope that we’ll be able to help the charity in their good work by raising funds and volunteering.
