Helen Mills

CEO - Age UK Northumberland

I wanted to send a personal thank you for attending our 2018 Annual Dinner, which raised over £5,500 for the fight against loneliness in Northumberland.

Age UK Northumberland’s main goal as a charity is to significantly reduce loneliness throughout the county and because of your table sponsorship and raffle prizes; we will now be able to make over 1,100 befriending calls to vulnerable older people in 2019!

I would also like to thank you for the continued support of Diamond Group, it really means a lot to the team. It was a pleasure to attend the North-East Charity Awards and I would like to congratulate you for being highly commended.

Of course, we have a long way to go before we completely eradicate the loneliness of older people in Northumberland, so we will be continuing to raise funds for the cause to ensure that we reach everyone who needs help.

As Age UK Northumberland continue to grow, partnerships are vital to our success and thanks to your support we are a step closer in ensuring that all older people are less lonely in later life.

Everybody should have somebody and we’re so glad that the older people of Northumberland have you.
