This donation will directly support older people in our local community who find themselves in greater need during the Coronavirus crisis.
Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is an independent local charity and the current Coronavirus crisis has meant that they need to offer even more support to continue their mission of helping older people live happier, active, fulfilled and socially-engaged lives.
Tony Donovan, Executive Director of Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland commented, “We are hugely grateful to the Everard Family Foundation for their donation at this challenging time. Richard Everard understands the importance of our charity through our longstanding relationship and has regularly supported us with both time and donations. We are very concerned about the impact on those who were already struggling with loneliness and mental health as a lot of older people find themselves isolated. We’ve been continuing to provide many services including befriending calls, collecting essentials such as food and prescriptions, and getting people to their hospital appointments. This funding will go towards delivering this and other essential support.”
