Age Concern is pleased to announce the launch of their website enabling anyone needing any information on everything the Charity is involved in.
The organisation is very highly valued throughout our catchment area for not only promoting the well-being of older and vulnerable people of all nationalities but the opportunity for people to come together socially.
For many reasons people can find themselves in a situation where they now live alone without their loved one, a large circle of friends and a social life. Our beneficiaries can fill their diaries with activities and events to attend with like-minded people and rekindle a social life improving their health and wellbeing.
As we are living longer, especially in Spain with our wonderful climate, the age of 50 is the new 30 something, and we are not ready to get the pipe and slippers out, we want some life and sparkle. Boredom and loneliness can creep up on us so we need to keep the brains and bodies active, restore the fun and laughter of our youth and a reason to get out of bed in the mornings. Being involved with Age Concern could well fit the bill.
Out of 168 hours there are in a week, could you spare just three and half hours to become a volunteer one morning a week at our Day Centre in La Siesta? Meet and greet people just like yourselves, sit with a cup of coffee and chat, mingle, laugh and, most importantly, get a lot of satisfaction from giving just these few valuable hours.
Get involved with our events team organising quizzes, dances, functions, fairs and more, you’ll not be alone in this fun role. Perhaps become a driver of one of our vehicles collecting and taking home our beneficiaries who come along for our daily coffee mornings or collecting small items from people who kindly donate articles for sale in either of our two charity shops. Being a volunteer for Age Concern is so worthwhile and rewarding.
Our volunteers are the backbone of our organisation and we can never have enough. Browse our new website and you’ll see just how much fun we have. If you don’t have access to a computer, just give us a ring on 966 786 887 or pop in our Day Centre at Calle Paganini, Urb. La Siesta find out more about becoming a volunteer or a beneficiary, you will be very welcomed.
