Valentine's Day Lonely Hearts Campaign

Why we need your help

As it won't be possible to celebrate this Valentine's Day by going for a meal or drinks with our loved one, why not donate the price of a meal or a bottle of wine to help those who are alone all year round?

 Before the outbreak of coronavirus, we were already facing an epidemic of loneliness among older people, but as a result of the pandemic this crisis has intensified, and older people are feeling more lonely and isolated than ever.

The necessary, but painful, social distancing from family and friends, and the withdrawal from the services and activities on which many rely, has only increased feelings of isolation and anxiety. For those who live on their own, these feelings are even more unbearable.

Age UK Solihull's Linking People Together Service connects lonely or isolated older people with a Volunteer Befriender, who visits them on a weekly basis to provide company and support. The service is currently being carried out by telephone, and those weekly phone calls may be the only social contact the older person has all week.

Just £5 could pay for a volunteer befriender to visit a lonely older person in their home or garden (when restrictions allow).

If you donate over £10, we will send you a Valentine's card to spread the love!

The thought of someone being lonely when there are so many of us to go round, makes me so sad. Hope this helps to cheer someone?s day x
