Help Age UK become Morrisons' new charity partner

Hello Mr

Will you help us end loneliness?

Devastatingly 600,000 older people would have no one to talk to if they didn't go to the supermarket. In fact, for too many older people, the chat they have at the checkout might be the only conversation they’ll have all week. 

This January Age UK has a once-in-a-lifetime chance to tackle loneliness head-on in communities across the UK by becoming Morrisons' new charity partner. But to do this we need your help.

Age UK is in the final two and now we need Morrisons staff to Vote Age UK. If you work or shop at Morrisons please help us to spread the word and encourage Morrisons staff to Vote Age UK as their charity partner. Staff will be voting between 16 and 27 January via an in-store ballot.

Pledge your support

How you can help

  1. If you work at Morrisons Vote Age UK from 16 to 27 January in your store, office or site, and encourage your colleagues to do the same.
  2. Even if you don't work at Morrisons you can still help by asking staff in your local Morrisons store to Vote Age UKPlease also give them a flyer and ask them to put it up on their staff noticeboard. Download the flyer here
  3. Get involved on social media to help us spread the word. Share our Twitter and Facebook posts about the vote and use the hashtag #VoteAgeUK.
  4. Put up Age UK's campaign poster in your local community - in places like your local GP surgery, school or dentist. Download the poster here.

How Age UK and Morrisons will tackle loneliness together

The partnership with Morrisons means everything to Age UK. We never get opportunities like this because older people are so frequently forgotten.

Together Age UK and Morrisons have the opportunity to really tackle loneliness in every Morrisons community, helping 250,000 older people through:

  • Thousands of local social activities and support services
  • An online 'friendship hub' to bring lonely older people together
  • A national loneliness awareness campaign that starts in every store and asks everyone to reach out and combat loneliness

Thank you for your support. We cannot do this without you.
