For the third year in succession, Age UK have been running their Donate a Coat appeal as part of their Spread the Warmth campaign to keep vulnerable older people warm and well this winter. Each winter, an extra 200 older people die every day from the effects of cold weather. Age UK aims to change that.
People across the country were again asked to give their unwanted coats and celebrities and top retailers also made donations.
At Richmond Letcombe Regis, both staff and residents gave coats which were then delivered to the Age UK Oxfordshire office in Abingdon to be sold in Age UK shops locally.
For information about activities and events taking place taking place at Richmond Letcombe Regis or if you would like to arrange a visit to view the apartments and care facilities, please contact us on 01235 773970 (option 1).
