REPRESENTATIVES from Greater Lisburn Seniors Together demonstrated their support for Age NI’s Spread the Warmth campaign at a recent meeting of the Chairs from nine Age Sector Networks across Northern Ireland.
Anne O’Reilly, Age NI Chief Executive commented: “Many older people find the winter months very challenging. Over 250,000 people in Northern Ireland worry about staying warm and 191,000 say loneliness is a major problem. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that our older friends and relatives feel well, warm and connected during winter.
“We are asking people to help us Spread the Warmth by being neighbourly and looking out for older members of their community this winter. We would also encourage those in need to call our Age NI Service on freephone 0808 808 4545.”
