#235 - 400 Elderly People

Request: Donations / A Graphic Designer / Messages

This week, we’re trying to help a group of 400 elderly folks in Berkshire who are all in self-isolation.

Most live on their own, have no family to support them and have no internet access. There is a wonderful little organisation called Link Visiting who are doing what they can to try to make sure they have everything they need and – most importantly – that they don’t feel scared or alone.

Link Visiting is trying to distribute regular well-being packs to each elderly person in isolation. It will be filled with some essential items, as well as a newsletter to help them stay connected and keep their spirits up. But for the newsletter alone, the printing and postage costs are far too much for such a small organisation to cover.

We would love to help!

What We Need

1. Donations: We need funds to help cover printing and postages costs for the newsletter, and also to help buy goods for the well-being packs. To make a donation, please click the link below.

2. A Designer: We’d love a designer to donate their time to design the newsletter for them – either as a one-off or on a more regular basis. If you can help, please complete the form below to let us know. 

3. Contributors: If you have a brief article you would like to contribute to the newsletter, please complete the form to let us know (ideally something light-hearted or helpful to keep their spirits up).
