This emergency appeal will help us towards our goal of raising £33,000 each month to reach older people in Suffolk who will be facing an extended period of isolation and loneliness.
The current situation has meant that we are experiencing a significant reduction in income of our paid for services and usual fundraising activities, which would usually fund our free Information & Advice and Befriending services.
We are already seeing an increase in the need for these vital services and anticipate 40% increase in regular call requests, as well as additional requests to help with urgent shopping and prescription collections.
We will be making regular "Good Day" calls to older people across Suffolk who are struggling in this time of need and need your help to make this possible.
Every penny that we raise in Suffolk, stays in Suffolk
