Laugh in the face of Monday, colder months and shorter days 😳 At the very least, let one of these double knit hats cheer you up. Not only are they carefully crafted from 100% merino wool by a group of talented local volunteers, but a purchase of any one of the different styles or colours available will raise much needed funds for @ageukexeter 💖 Made exclusively for Sancho's, they are available at 117 Fore Street or online. #ageukexeter #hats #fashion #charity #winter #style

On September 1st we launched our BIG EAT EXETER campaign. Just days later, Bournemouth University’s Ageing and Dementia Research Centre revealed that almost a fifth of over-75s in the UK go three months or longer with no one to share a meal with. This is exactly why we have developed Big Eat Exeter. Why not sign up today?
"He's like a Grandad to me". Our volunteer visitor regularly visits John and he calls her from time to time for a chat. He has also been to her house and met her husband and children. They have a lovely relationship!

Nina's greatest desire was to travel down to see the Red Arrows air show in Sidmouth this year. Not being a very well lady she had no chance of getting there on her own, so she turned to the Age UK Exeter Enabling team to assist. As we already knew Nina, as a client, it was easy for us to put the call out among our fabulous team of paid enablers to see if anyone might be available to escort her down to Sidmouth, on Friday evening in August. Sally R stepped forward and said she would be very happy to help, and so the trip was arranged and Nina and Sally had an exhilarating time watching the aerial acrobatics of the Red Arrows on the seafront at Sidmouth, along with hundreds of others who had turned out.

If you have a dream you would like to realise, or a place you would like to see, and all that stands in the way is a little bit of help to get you there and a friendly face to accompany you, contact the Enabling team at Age UK Exeter, we can probably help.
