Team story

[p][b]Little Wins Together – let’s support our charities[/b][/p][p]Since March 2018, we’ve joined forces with three charity partners - Alzheimer's Society, Save the Children and Teenage Cancer Trust - to create one programme designed to support families when they need it the most.[/p][p]Coronavirus is having a huge affect on vulnerable families across our communities and we are asking for your support to help our charities support them during coronavirus.[b] Please donate what you can or take part in our 2.6 challenge so we can continue to support families when they need it most.[/b][/p][p]Alzheimer's Society - under government advice, men and women in the UK over 70 – that’s around 700,000 people with dementia – will be asked to stay at home for an extensive period of time. We are currently in the process of establishing a completely new service – ‘companion calls’. This will involve volunteers proactively telephoning vulnerable people with dementia, or their families and carers to chat, check on their wellbeing and, if necessary, refer them to other services like Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Connect Support Line.[/p][p]Save the Children - here in the UK, even before the coronavirus outbreak, 4 million children lived in poverty. Coronavirus now threatens children’s early education and increases the financial strain on parents. Children’s learning and development, mental health and wellbeing are at real risk. To meet the needs identified by parents, Save the Children UK is launching an Emergency Grant Programme which will assist families in need with: Early learning resources, food e-vouchers and essential household products to support the home learning environment.[/p][p]Teenage Cancer Trust - right now, many young people with cancer across the UK are particularly at risk from the coronavirus. They may face even greater uncertainty and isolation than ever before, with healthcare services incredibly stretched. Cancer doesn’t stop for anything, so however long this crisis lasts, young people will need their support more than ever.[/p][p][b]Please donate whatever you can or take on a 2.6 challenge to support our charities in their response to coronavirus. If there’s one thing that lockdown has taught us, it’s that we’re better when we’re together, and right now charities need our help more than ever.[/b][/p]
