An initiative to raise much-needed funds for an Eastbourne charity has reached an impressive milestone.
Eastbourne-based Welbeing, the specialist provider of independent living services, 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 Age Concern 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 out 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 at Age Concern Eastbourne for older people in the local area.”
Age Concern Eastbourne has been caring for the people of Eastbourne for more than 65 years.
On April 1, 2011 the charity decided to remain independent of Age UK, and become a truly independent local charity.
It is the only one of its kind in Eastbourne dedicated to older people and their families.
The charity believes that every person should be able to look forward to later life with confidence. Don’t miss out on all the latest breaking news where you live.
