Imagine spending Christmas alone... 

Age UK’s No one should have no one at Christmas campaign is raising awareness of the silent suffering that many older people endure as they face the festive season alone. 

Our new campaign films feature actors James Bolam and Miriam Margolyes. These poignant films are the real personal stories of Roy and Janet, who are supported by Age UK’s telephone befriending service that provides weekly friendship calls. 

Watch the video and pledge your support to help tackle the loneliness that is blighting the lives of far too many older people.
