March 2020 marked a special occasion for Age Concern Birmingham as the charity raised a fantastic £1,854 through the Goalden Gate Superdraw which is the highest donation received from MSA Ltd so far. This donation brings the total amount raised from the Superdraw so far to a staggering £49k!
Like many charities at present, Age Concern Birmingham, are feeling the strain of the Covid-19 Virus but through the dedication and commitment of their staff and volunteers they are continuing to do their very best to support those that need it most in Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
Becky Bews, Age Concern Birmingham CEO, stated “Due to COVID-19 we have adapted our services, making operational changes to enable us to offer much needed support and care across the community. We have also made changes to provide safe working environments for our staff and volunteers.”
Becky also went on to praise the Goalden Gate Superdraw scheme and encouraged their supporters to join by mentioning “As a local Birmingham charity the monies that we receive by you playing the Goalden Gate Superdraw allows us to continue our work with older people and others in need offering befriending services and COVID19 support such as delivering essential food bags, shopping and prescription calls, fresh meal deliveries, wellbeing calls or just having a chat knowing someone is there to listen and give reassurance.”
Age Concern Birmingham strives to provide the very best support and care to older people and others in need as they aim to enrich the lives of older people and others in need through a range of services offered. Kevin Kay, MSA Ltd Promotions Manager, states “Having used Age Concern Birmingham’s Communitea Cafe I have seen first hand what a positive impact the charity has on the local community and I have heard nothing but great things from the people who have used the services that they offer to help the wellbeing and independence of older people.”
