Making Connections Christmas Appeal

11.25.2016

Ever think of the impact of the long dark Winter days on the older generation in your family?

Did you know, research shows loneliness and isolation is worse for our health than smoking fifteen cigarettes a day and twice as deadly as obesity?

In our own community, many older people are facing endless days alone in their homes. Loss of mobility, friends passing away, and other age-related challenges leave people extremely vulnerable. The impact of loneliness can be devastating.

“Loneliness is the sudden realisation that you are not needed anymore, by anybody, for anything. It’s worse than pain or illness, it feels like you’re just waiting to die”
Margaret, Making Connections beneficiary (2016)

This Christmas, we invite you to be part of the solution. Follow the links today to find out how you can help us to transform lives…
