Season's greetings | Surprising an unsung hero | Befriending stories

No one should have no one at Christmas

Dear Mr

After what seems like months of build-up, the holidays are finally here, but not all of us look forward to Christmas. 

Age UK believes that no one should have no one during the festive season, and in our Christmas campaign we've shared two older people’s real life experiences of feeling lonely. In one of these stories, BAFTA-winning actor Miriam Margolyes brings to life Janet’s experience of joining Age UK's telephone befriending service after finding herself alone at Christmas. 

Please watch Janet's film and support our campaign so we can help more older people to feel less lonely.

Wishing you a peaceful Christmas, 

Sophie, Age UK
