What are you doing Tuesdays 10.00am? Age Concern Colchester & North East Essex has partnered with the #Nepalese Society in Colchester to promote two-way friendships and integration between those who are Nepalese and British.⠀
We are looking at innovative ways to learn English / #Nepalese that includes #Art, #Craft, #Knitting, #Dancing (from both cultures), singing and other #friendship clubs. While working to improve opportunities for general conversation we love having some great fun together too.⠀

We’ve had a great week at #ageconcerncolchester with our arrival of some outdoor seating, courtesy of a grant from King Coel Kittens and some beautiful flowers to brighten up the front of our building with the amazing help and support from Colchester in Bloom.

Look out for older people in the heat - It only takes a few minutes to make a phone call or to pop round to your neighbour’s/friend’s/family member’s home and check on them. By doing this you could end up saving someone’s life. #staywellessex #livewell #Colchester #ageconcerncolchester

Introducing Owen Gosling who asks you all for support while he undertakes an eight day fundraising challenge: “Check in with my challenge as I attempt to raise much needed funds for Age Concern by completing the first ever solo, self sufficient circumnavigation of The Island of Arran.”⠀
⠀
Speaking to Owen one will soon understand he feels strongly about the bad press the younger generation have lately received at the hands of the media which he feels isn’t a true reflection of the many youngsters out there who are willing to create a positive vibe within our society by pitching in and helping out. So through this walk, he is reaching out from one generation to another because as he so astutely reminds us, the young are just as likely to encounter loneliness as do older folk particularly when living away from home for the first time. His vision is to raise awareness by doing the walk as a solo adventure so as to demonstrate that the best way to combat loneliness is being active out in the fresh air which we are sure will inspire anyone under strain from being alone for a considerable length of time.⠀
⠀
Owen writes “In Great Britain 2.2 Million people aged over 75 are suffering from Chronic loneliness. Company is the one thing many take for granted and as we get older our circles of company will shrink. Age Concern looks to keep the fresh spirit flowing through the elderly in our community, bridging the gap of loneliness.”⠀
⠀
Owen is chronicling his journey ahead so you can currently catch up with latest news on – facebook and – instagram accessed from our blog page on our official website. We will keep you posted about progress with news of other places where you can view Owen’s story so watch this space! ⠀

#AgeConcernColchester and NE #Essex say a big thanks to those who turned up at Clacton Covered Market to Knit us small smoothie hats so we can turn them into cash. That way we can help make life better for those in #LaterYears around NE #Essex. This money will be invested into many of our projects around the community, also on the #Veranda where we hold many #friendship groups and events. Meanwhile, good knitting – keep them coming in so we can reach our target of 10,000 mini hats in the next 8 weeks.⠀

Would you consider donating towards our outside project. Age Concern is set to see 10,000 visitors this year. We are looking to improve access, develop a gardening project and provide an area for those in later years to socialise and share life stories.⠀
We are in the process of planning permission and progressing forwards. We have picked up some costs already and your donation will help us to keep a focus on serving those in poverty and loneliness rather than using those funds for the building work. ⠀
