Charity of the Year 2016 – 2017

Wandsworth Age UK

It is with great pleasure that the Hanne & Co Charity Committee announce that the nominated charity for 2016 – 2017 is Age UK Wandsworth!

Age UK Wandsworth works with people age 60 and over in the London Borough of Wandsworth, providing a variety of services with an aim to improving the quality of life for its service-users. These services include offering information and advice on matters such as benefits and housing, hosting social events such as coffee mornings and pub lunches, and even a handyperson service for those minor repairs and small jobs around the house.

Everyone deserves the right to be heard and to live an enjoyable life with support and companionship. Our older community have contributed to society for much of their lives and it is important that the contributions they continue to make are recognised and appreciated. We agree with Age UK Wandsworth: no one should have no one.

Funding cuts have affected many people in society and unfortunately it resulted in the closure of the charity’s drop-in advice service on 10 February 2016. The Charity Committee will work throughout the year to fundraise for the charity through various events and initiatives.
