Age UK Nottingham and Nottinghamshire are celebrating their 75th birthday this year and have set a target of planting 750 trees across the county. The project will help to provide invaluable support for the elderly as well as enhancing Robin Hood’s countryside for future generations.
The charity offers a range of vital services for older people throughout Nottinghamshire and has helped to empower thousands. Age UK recognises that independence, dignity and personal development do not stop when we decide to retire.
Indeed, the highly innovative ‘Men In Sheds’ project has been a great success. Elderly men now have the opportunity to share and learn new skills whilst making a valuable contribution to the local community. Society as a whole can benefit massively when the older generation is allowed to shine.
I think it is a tremendous idea and I am well aware of the fantastic contribution Age UK make. My friend Maggie Ross MBE works for the charity and recently told me about their plans. The last time I had the good fortune to work with Maggie was when she organised an exceptional Great Gatsby themed ball at the Walton Hotel. It was a fantastic success and raised considerable funds for Age UK.
Age UK are inviting the public to sponsor a tree. If you would like to participate in this very worthy cause, the free phone number is 0800 088 6349 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
