Age UK Suffolk would like to say a huge thank you to the Martlesham Ladies Club, who have raised £800 for the charity.
The Club organised a variety of events including a coffee morning, which was held on Saturday 5th July, the Martlesham Ladies really pulled out all the stops to show their support.
A cheque presentation was held on the 5th September at the Martlesham Community Centre, and Maggie James, Age UK Suffolk’s Individual Giving’s Officer, said, “I was delighted to be invited to receive the cheque for £800 from the Martlesham Ladies Club – they have worked very hard organising various events to raise funds and all the money will go towards supporting older people in the county – we rely on donations and fundraising events to help support our work”
Doreen Boar, Chair of the Martlesham Ladies Club, said, “We are very pleased to support Age UK Suffolk who have helped many older people we know and who provide so many wonderful services to make sure older people in our county get the support they need, particularly those who live alone and feel isolated and really need help and advice.”
