An innovative new scheme will generate vital funds for AGE Concern Eastbourne.

Welbeing, which is also based in Eastbourne, will give commission to the charity every time a new customer signs up and quotes ‘AGE Concern’.

The income raised in this way will help Age Concern Eastbourne deliver valuable services in the local area whilst at the same time supporting Welbeing, a local not-for-profit company.

Charlene Saunders, marketing manager at Welbeing, said, “AGE Concern Eastbourne makes a tremendous difference in the town by providing a broad range of services and support.

“There is clearly considerable synergy between Welbeing and AGE Concern Eastbourne, so it’s even more pleasing that we’re now supporting them, especially at this time of the year.”

AGE Concern Eastbourne is located in the Venton Centre in Ashford Road and welcomes individuals aged 50 plus looking for anything from companionship to professional advice, or simply people who don’t know where else to turn. Welbeing helps customers to live independently by using specially designed home alarms, including the famous red pendant.

Andrea Richardson, from 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 at AGE Concern Eastbourne for older people in the local area.”
