AGE UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent has received a £5,000 donation from Coca-Cola European Partners to help combat loneliness for elderly residents during lockdown.

The donation was used to buy mobile phones and laptops so that more Age UK volunteers can keep in regular contact.

It will enable volunteers to reach an additional 400 people by phone and over video calls.

They can also provide support and guidance for a range of issues including claiming benefits, housing support and will-writing.
