Volunteer Christmas

Corinne Morris from Age Concern Wellington

As many of you know, Age Concern is a charity organisation that helps seniors in the Hutt Valley, Porirua and Wellington. We rely on donations to be able to achieve the work we do to ensure seniors are not left lonely, that they have groceries delivered, and are well taken care of and informed. Our volunteers always work hard and make many sacrifices to reach out to older people across the Wellington Region.

We are extra proud of our volunteer team in 2020 as they stepped up during Covid-19 and ensured hundreds of seniors had someone to talk to, during and after, lockdown. They made thousands of phone calls and even delivered groceries to seniors who couldn’t get down to the supermarket. They are fantastic, and we wouldn’t be able to achieve all we do without them.

That’s why we want to say a big thank to them all this Christmas. We would love to show them how much they mean to us and to older people across the Region. Can you help us do this?

Whittaker's and Annah Stretton have generously donated goods for our volunteers. But we are in need of more help. If you can help us or know of someone or a business that can, please email me at volunteer@acwellington.org.nz

Thank you very much.
