We couldn’t do this without the help of many generous and kind people and organisations. One of these organisations is Project Village (Lagi Finau), who made up some amazing gift packs for lonely and isolated seniors in time for Christmas.

So, on the last working day in December, our CEO Stephen Opie and Social Connection Coordinator Kirsten Blyde spent the day delivering the gift packs all over town. “It was great to spread a little Christmas cheer a couple of days before Christmas. Some even said that this was probably the only gift they would receive,” Stephen said.

Thank you Project Village for caring for our Region’s seniors!

Stuff Ltd's recent support for Age Concern Wellington Region's Christmas appeal has been invaluable:

"Age Concern also experienced a burst of new interest and donations after we wrote about Rick Johnston and Denis White, who have been buddied up through Age Concern's visiting service. Johnston takes 82-year-old White out to lunch or to Mitre 10, or works in his backyard.
'But the best outcome has been the 35 volunteers signing up to help deliver social connection services to older people in our communities,” said Stephen Opie, chief executive of Age Concern Wellington. “We’re always needing more volunteers, so this has been a great response for us.'"
