Age UK Northumberland has received £1,000 from Persimmon Homes North East, as part of the firms’ Community Champions initiative.
The independent charity provides services for an estimated 5,555 older adults throughout the county.
The Persimmon funds will be used to reinforce one of Age UK Northumberland’s key strategic aims, to reduce loneliness of older adults in the area.
The charity looks to achieve this through the introduction of a friendship line with a fund-raising target of £30,000.
