If you are, you can help us win some funding!
Contact the Elderly has been shortlisted for the Co-Op Local Community Fund, which puts us in the running to secure funding that will help us continue to alleviate loneliness amongst older people, but we need support from Co-Op members. The funds, which are raised through sales of Co-Op own brand products and services as well as money raised from the sales of plastic bags, will play a major role in supporting our tea parties which tackle loneliness and help bring people together.
The recipient of the funding will be decided solely by Co-Op members, so if you are one, you can select Contact the Elderly as your chosen beneficiary; the more votes we receive, the greater chance there is of us winning! Voting will take you less than a minute and can be done online by clicking here and then heading to the 'Select your cause' heading.
If you are not yet a Co-Op member, then you can sign up and create an account easily today and cast your vote for Contact the Elderly here. Please note that becoming a Co-Op member will cost you £1.
