We will be helping to fundraise for The Silver Line throughout the coming 12 months at our various events including having collection boxes in the shop.
Claire Lindfield, Head of Corporate Partnerships at The Silver Line, said: “We are thrilled that The Emporium Somerset has selected us as its Charity of the Year. All the support we receive is vital to the service we provide.”
The Silver Line operates the only national, free, confidential helpline for lonely and isolated older people. It currently receives 10,000 calls a week and more than 68% of calls are made during the night or at weekends.
We are super excited to be supporting it as our Charity of the Year. We are really looking forward to fundraising in aid of the charity during the coming 12 months.
