Charity of the Year- The Stroke Association
Age UK works to improve later life for everyone by providing life-enhancing services and support.
£50,000 enabled Age UK to reach out to more than 4,000 elderly people across the UK over the festive season. The funding paid for events aimed at isolated older people who have little, or no, other opportunity to leave their homes each week. It also provided the charity with the opportunity to talk to more elderly people about the wider services they offer.
Diabetes UK is the leading charity that cares for people affected by, or at risk of, diabetes.
£50,000 enabled Diabetes UK to hold a series of roadshows across ten locations throughout the UK, directly reaching 1,300 people. Members of the public were invited onto the "Know Your Risk" bus to find out their risk of Type 2 diabetes. In addition, participants were able to access support from a registered dietician and advice on physical activity.
