As we all know, the elderly are some of the most vulnerable during this scary and uncertain time - particularly those who usually rely on family and friends for both practical and emotional support, they have essentially been cut off from their life-lines. They've never needed our help more! I'm extremely lucky to be able bodied, healthy and able to work from home so I'm committing my time to fundraise in support of Staywell Kingston to give back to my local community in this small way during this time of crisis.

I hope you can support the activities I'm embarking on (cycle challenges & handmade cards coming your way...) as your funds will make an immediate impact - £5 enables an isolated person to received a phone call from the befriending service, £10 provides IT assistance to an older person with new technology at home and £20 provides a free bereavement support session for 6 people. Please consider donating if you are financially able to and if not, please keep an eye out for those in your community who need our support the most. Thanks all for reading! Charlotte x
