Bring joy to lonely people this Christmas

This Christmas we want to reach out to people who are lonely by bringing friendship and joy into their lives this Christmastime.

The past 20 months have been particularly isolating for thousands of older people living alone across the UK. Many will have spent Christmas Day alone last year without friends and family to keep them company.

This Christmas, with the support of generous people like you, The Salvation Army will be there for lonely older people. We will be providing friendship and a hot meal to those in need. We will do all we can this winter for the older people in our communities who have never felt as lonely as they do now. 

Please support our Christmas Appeal so we can provide friendship and a hot meal to lonely older people this winter.

A gift of:

  • £19 could help provide a box of groceries and modest gifts, so that families who are struggling in poverty can share a basic Christmas meal together.
  • £45 could provide an hour of one-to-one support work for five homeless people in one of our centres to help them get back on their feet and make a fresh start.
  • £112 could provide a Christmas dinner and the promise of companionship for 50 lonely older people.
