Creating Connections Campaign

12.06.2023

We know that in England, 2 million over 75’s live alone and 75% of them feel lonely – 6% reporting chronic loneliness. One third of older people feel more lonely in the wake of Covid-19 and 500,000 do not see or speak to anyone for 5 to 6 days each week.

As you may be aware, Linking Lives UK is a national Christian charity focused on addressing these issues on a local level through community groups, churches, volunteers and individuals.

This campaign aims to raise £5,000 towards our much needed work. This includes developing befriending schemes in local communities, running volunteer training for those engaged in regular drop-in centres and delivering monthly webinars which equip individuals to make a difference on a local level.
 

Donating is really easy and completely secure and you can do this below through Stewardship or CAF Donate. If you are a UK taxpayer, please confirm that you would like to reclaim Gift Aid on your donation. This will add 25p to every £1 you give. All funds raised will be allocated to the day to day running costs of running the charity. Thank you so much for your support.
