Anonymous donation of £20,000 to Age Concern


An anonymous benefactor has come forward to donate a staggering £20,000 to Age UK West Cumbria.

Last week the charity received £10,000 from Cumbria Community Foundation through the Cumbria COVID-19 Response Fund. After hearing about the grant and the services Age UK West Cumbria are providing in response to COVID-19, the benefactor approached Cumbria Community Foundation to offer vital financial support. 

The anonymous donor is said to understand the challenges charitable organisations like Age UK West Cumbria are facing in the current climate, including the increased demand for services at a time when resources are scarce.

 “We were speechless when we heard about the donation. Whoever you are, please know that everyone at Age UK West Cumbria is incredibly grateful. Your donation will enable us to support a huge number of older people across West Cumbria, thank you” – Jane Mindar (Deputy CEO). 

Last month Age Concern were forced to temporarily suspend all of their face-to-face activity. This included our Clubs & Groups, Day Activities, Footcare and Handyperson services, along with five charity shops. As a result, a large proportion of staff were furloughed and 90% of income was lost overnight.

However, determined to be there for older people at a time when they need it most - two new Helplines, a Food Parcel Delivery and Check-In service to provide vital support to older people during the coronavirus outbreak were opened. These services are running alongside existing Information & Advice and Befriending services, which are now taking place over the phone.

 “This generous donation will help our charity continue to provide vital support to older people during the coronavirus outbreak. The trustees, staff and volunteers would like to publically thank the anonymous donor for this enormous display of kindness and generosity.” – Anne Prowse (Chair of Trustees).
