Welcome to the July edition of our Supporter Newsletter

Happy Summer. We hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and enjoying the weather - long may it last.

In this edition of our Supporter Newsletter, you can read our top tips for staying safe in the sun, but also about all the ways you can continue to help older people across Northern Ireland who need our support. 

Fancy a challenge? Why not push your boundaries by taking on our Firewalk? Don't worry though, if walking over hot coals isn't your thing, we have lots of other ways you can get involved.

A massive thanks also to everyone who has also supported our Summer Appeal. Your donations are making a huge difference to people like Martin, helping him to stay independent and connected.

As always, we are so grateful for your support. Whether you read our Newsletter, support us through fundraising or give up your time to volunteer, it all makes a difference.

Thank you,
Team Age NI

Summer Appeal - Your support means the world to people like Martin. 

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported our Summer Appeal so far.  Each of your donations will help provide care, support and advice for vulnerable older people in Northern Ireland.

If you haven’t donated already and would like to do so, there's still time. Every gift, no matter how large or small, really does make a difference.


Top tips for staying safe this summer 

A little bit of sunshine is good for us and can lift our spirits – let’s face it, it can often be a welcome change from the rain and cold we experience in Northern Ireland. 

We have put together some handy tips and very useful advice on keeping yourself cool and safe during the hot weather.

The Big Knit 

We are calling on our supporters to help us hit our Big Knit target of 75,000 hats! This year's Big Knit deadline is approaching. We need to have all your gorgeous hats to by 5th August. So please keep knitting and sending us the amazing creations you come up with. 

For each be-hatted smoothie sold*, Age NI receives 25p, and that money helps us support older people who are facing later life alone.

Take our Loneliness Survey 

Loneliness is a deeply personal, painful feeling which is experienced by many people in our society. People can be lonely in a crowded room or when they are on their own. Research shows that loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health and well-being.

We want to find out more about loneliness and social interaction. We will use what we learn to help change policy and services to improve the lives of older people.

You can help by completing this short survey. It will only take 10 minutes of your time.
