Helping older people love later life.
As we look back over an amazing year and look forward toward Christmas, spending time with family and loved ones, we should bare a thought for those less fortunate than ourselves. Especially those who are lonely and isolated from their families at Christmas time.
This Christmas instead of giving gifts to our clients and suppliers we have decided to give a donation to Age UK Teesside, helping older people love later life.
Squegg has supported Age UK Teesside throughout 2017 with a number of donations and fundraising events. We are proud to have been able to do this and we think all of our clients and suppliers will feel the same way.
Anne Sykes, Chief Executive of Age UK Teesside commented:
This is fantastic, thank you for your support as always. The amount raised equates to us supplying 5 x Winter warmth packs which we give to older people who are financially unable to keep their heating on at all times in severely cold weather, to keep them warm and safe at night. The packs include thermals, gloves, hat, socks, hot water bottle as well as a flask which they can fill with a hot drink and take to bed with them. Essential in the winter.
Over the Christmas period we can all feel we have brought joy and happiness to the elderly community, making sure they too have a sociable Christmas. No one should have no one, especially at this time of the year.
