My story

[p]I am doing the London to Brighton bike ride because (Insert your story)[/p][p]Age UK Wandsworth is a local independent charity supporting older people in Wandsworth. Contrary to what you might think, they are not funded by Age UK. During the coronavirus pandemic demand for their services has increased dramatically and, with a recession looming, this will put pressure on their income.[/p][p]Since the pandemic began, Age UK Wandsworth has delivered over 3500 emergency food parcels, provided telephone befriending for over 350 people and started a new service called 'Active Chats' to provide seated exercise over the telephone for those isolating at home. And of course they have kept all their 'normal services' running too such as Information and Advice, Handyperson service, Digital Support, Hospital Discharge Support and Telephone Shopping.[/p][p]Every penny you donate will help Age UK Wandsworth continue to support older people in Wandsworth, throughout the pandemic and beyond:[/p][p]Some of the ways in which your donation could be spent are:[/p][p][b]£5[/b] - Provides regular phone calls to an isolated, housebound person who may rarely speak to anyone[/p][p][b]£20[/b] - Shopping service for essential groceries for 3 older people who cannot shop for themselves[/p][p][b]£50[/b] - Completes a full benefits check for an older person, ensuring they receive the benefits they are entitled to[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p]
