Age UK is calling on locals to Donate a Coat as part of the Charity’s Spread the Warmth campaign. The Charity is encourgaing you to donate any coats you no longer wear, along with other unwanted warm clothing, to the store to help raise much-needed funds to support older people.

Spread the Warmth aims to raise awareness of the challenges older people are facing during the colder months and rally support. Funds raised from the campaign will help ensure Age UK can continue to provide crucial services, such as its free national Advice Line, Telephone Friendship Service and The Silver Line Helpline, to those who are vulnerable and struggling this winter.

Lisa, Manager at the Age UK Witham shop, said: “Winter is one of the toughest times for older people, which is why we are asking Witham to get involved and support our Donate a Coat appeal. Our shop is reliant on generous donations to keep the shelves stocked. The donated coats will be sold on to be loved again, helping to recycle and reduce waste, but also raising much-needed funds for Age UK’s work supporting older people this winter and all year round.”

Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign aims to raise awareness of the challenges facing older people this winter, and the many ways the public can offer their support. Find out more here
