Bobbles at Age UK Lindsey


The team at the Age UK Lindsey shop in Eastgate is dressing up in woolly jumpers and decorating the charity shop with bobbles, bunting and balloons.

Age UK Lindsey iis getting behind Bobble Day on Friday February 7, part of Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign to help keep older people warm and well during the Winter.

Money raised from Bobble Day will go towards Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign.

Age UK and its local and national partners are working hard to help older people keep warm and well throughout the winter in a number of ways, including through winter benefit checks and handyperson services as well as home visits and befriending services for those who may feel isolated. Age UK also offers information and advice 365 days a year and older people and their families can call Age UK Advice free on 0800 1696565. Alternatively they can contact the Age UK Lindsey Information and Advice team on 01507 355961.

The staff at Barclays Bank are also getting involved. Employees from branches including Alford and Mablethorpe and Spilsby will be holding a Wear a Woollie to Work Day and fundraising.

Philippa Haresign, Chief Executive of Age UK Lindsey, said: “Our Information and Advice Officers visit people’s homes to offer guidance and support, so often the work we are doing in this area of East Lindsey goes unnoticed. Barclays support Age UK nationally, so it is great to be able to link up locally in East Lindsey to work together to support older vulnerable people in our area.”
