Age Concern Thurrock is a friend of Age UK Essex

Do you know someone who is over 65 years of age and lives in Thurrock, and either has had a year that has been difficult and needs to receive some Christmas cheer or has been particularly helpful and supportive of another older person during the year?

Then why not nominate them to receive one of Age Concern Thurrock’s Christmas Wishes? 

Send your nomination to Age Concern Thurrock, The Beehive Centre, West Street Grays RM17 6XP or email it to ageconcernthurrock@btconnect.com to be received before November 30th 2014.

Please include details of the nominated person and why you consider they should receive this Christmas floral recognition. Details of nomination in no more than a maximum of 100 words. Nominations must be made by a third party. Recipients will be chosen from those nominated. Trustees’ decision is final.

Do you have a disability that prevents you from writing your own Christmas cards? Age Concern’s card writing service may be able to help you.

The card writing service can offer one-off visit from an Age Concern volunteer who will be able to write out your Christmas cards for you in your own home FREE of charge, although a small donation is always appreciated.

You will have contact with the service Co-ordinator and the service provided is monitored, with immediate attention to any problems that might arise. All volunteers are carefully screened and trained, and your personal information will be kept in confidence. You will be respected and valued as an individual.

The card writing service will not be able to provide housework, shopping or gardening, deal with money or bills, help with any personal care or accompany you outside your own home.

All we ask is that you let us know  if you are unable to keep to the arrangements you make with your volunteer, and we welcome your comments on the service, whether good or not so good.

If you need help with Birthday Cards throughout the year, that can also be arranged.

Please note that this service can only be offered if suitably trained and checked volunteers are available.
