On Friday 19th June Bluebird Care Gateshead took part in the Age UK’s ‘Big Chinwag’ event to raise funds to help tackle loneliness in later life.

Age UK's Big ChinwagAge UK report that more than a million older people in the UK go for a month or more without seeing or speaking to anyone. We want to do everything possible to stop people feeling isolated and alone, so on Friday 19th June Bluebird Care Gateshead took part in the Age UK’s ‘Big Chinwag’ event to raise funds to help tackle loneliness in later life.

We invited our friends and the local community to join us for a chat along with a cup of tea and a delicious piece of cake. We had great fun over a game of bingo and a tough quiz set by Age UK. The event was a great success and we managed to raise nearly £60 for Age UK.

Katheryn Ranson, Director of Bluebird Care Gateshead commented:
 
We had such a great morning talking to friends and new friends from our local community, we were really happy with the turnout. I feel passionately about making sure everyone in our community feels like they are not alone, and I wanted to support Age UK’s ‘Big Chinwag’ event to help ensure everyone in our community enjoys the company and support they deserve.”
