LinkAges is our project that helps combat

elderly isolation through intergenerational

work.

This year saw even more projects be set up,

including a gym buddy scheme at River Park

Leisure. This is alongside our continuing

activities such as our annual Tea Party.

"The support and friendship

the volunteers have given to

the Residents at General

During lockdown, we ensured that the elderly were

not forgotten. We set up pen pal schemes where

in care homes.
