2020 hasn’t been the year we expected. Yet it’s been truly heart-warming to see friendships thriving and strengthening between our volunteers and VIPs (over 60s). Just when we’ve all needed them most.
This year has brought unforeseen challenges. For example, difficulties in seeing friends and family, spending more time at home, not even popping out for a cuppa and a chat. So we’re especially determined to build EVEN MORE real friendships with lonely over 60s in Edinburgh.
And you can help!
Inspired by the GiveBack2020 initiative, we’ve come up with 3 KEY WAYS you can ‘give back’ this Christmas and join the #VVKindnessClub. And whatever you choose to do, we would LOVE you to share it with us on social media using the hashtag #VVKindnessClub.
Thank you, superheroes!
Be a superstar and help us raise £2,021 for 2021!
We’re so thankful that our project is part-funded by a range of fantastic funders, but we want to ensure that we can continue to expand our reach in Edinburgh.
Why? So we can reach even more isolated and lonely over 60s through our fun and unique approach to creating REAL and meaningful friendships.
Can you help us reach our goal?
