An initiative to raise much-needed funds for Age Concern Eastbourne has reached an impressive milestone.
Welbeing runs a scheme that generates a small commission for Age Concern Eastbourne every time a new customer signs up and quotes ‘Age Concern’.
This week saw the 200th referral from the charity to the local company under the initiative which has raised £5,000 towards delivering vital services for the town’s over-50s in the last two years.
Charlene Saunders, Marketing Manager at Welbeing, said, “We are delighted to offer our continued support to Age Concern Eastbourne which provides a variety of important services to improve older people’s quality of life.
“The charity’s aims are very much in line with those of Welbeing, supporting independent living for many people as possible.”
Andrea Richardson, Director of Trading at Age Concern Eastbourne, said, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work and be associated with Welbeing.
“The Lifeline personal alarm service is invaluable and complements the support we provide.”
Age Concern Eastbourne has been quietly caring for the people of Eastbourne for over 65 years, a record of local service of which we are justifiably proud.
On April 1 2011 wit decided to remain independent of Age UK, and become a truly independent local charity; the only one of its kind in Eastbourne dedicated to older people and their families in our town and the surrounding areas.
It believes that every person should be able to look forward to later life with confidence; knowing that organisations like itself will always be there to provide help, advice and activities to promote independence and well-being.
