We recently made a donation of £750 to Dorchester Age UK to support older people living in poverty and suffering from loneliness.

As a small, independent charity, Dorchester Age UK are working hard to combat loneliness and isolation through a range of local services. These include an outreach service, befriending team, regular lunch clubs, day centres, memory support sessions, footcare services, exercise sessions and, crucially, benefits advice. All their services provide an essential lifeline for people when there’s no one else to turn to.

We very much hope that our contribution will help with their valuable work.
