At the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, we launched our emergency appeal - Good Day Calls to help us raise £33,000 each month to ensure that we can continue to provide vital support to older people across Suffolk. As the pandemic continues, and the usual income streams for Age UK Suffolk continue to be limited, we are asking you to continue supporting our work as we find new ways of continuing to help older people to combat loneliness and isolation.
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
