Anyone who knew my lovely mum would know that she was worth celebrating. I wanted to mark her passing in a positive and happy way - a way she would have been proud of.
As a Putney resident for most of her life and a willing volunteer for Age UK Wandsworth and their 'Be a Friend' scheme - even into her early 80's! - raising money for them seemed the obvious choice. Imagine my delight when I rang them to propose my fundraising idea and they readily remembered her and sang her praises.
So ... Putney/Wandsworth/London residents, why not come and join us at a local event that promises to be heaps of fun and all for a good cause (click on picture below for details). Age UK works tirelessly to support the elderly. They recognise that growing old can be lonely but their vision is for a world where everyone can love later life.
And if you can't be with us on the night but would like to support my cause, please visit my JustGiving page and donate as little or as much as you can. On behalf of my mum and the elderly residents of Wandsworth, I thank you.
