Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire: Here to Help

Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire are working hard in these unprecedented times to support their customers.

As they navigate our way through these challenging and ever changing times, they wanted to reassure you that they are working hard to ensure the continuation of their services for those who need them the most.

Although the way they deliver some of their services may change over the coming weeks and months, their commitment to their customers and older people will not change.

 

All current initiatives:

 

In partnership with Salted Orange Food Co.: 21 Meals for just £20

To enable this project to be run logistically and offer other local support with shopping/ essential items they are recruiting an army of Community Heroes.

This week they took their first order from Australia – a concerned family member ordering meals for an older relative in Lincoln.

Fundraising
