Bobble Day 7th Feb 2014
Bobble Day is Friday Feb 7th 2014
Help us Warm Up Calderdale and Kirklees and raise money to continue our vital work supporting local older people.
Did you know that last year over half a million older people in the UK spent Christmas Day alone? And worse, over 1 million older people around us have not seen a friend, neighbour or family member in over a month. Winter months have a devastating impact on many older people - last year's cold winter was especially harsh causing excess winter deaths to rise by 30% to over 31,000 older people. That's why Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees is inviting you to join thousands of others across the UK raising money for Age UK's Bobble Day on Friday 7th February 2014.
Any money that you raise will help Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees warm up our older people, by bringing them together for hot meals, friendship and activities.
We are asking everyone to come to work, your local community venue or even school on Friday 7th February dressed in anything woolly. Be it a funny jumper, a sherpa hat or a colourful scarf. Each person pays £2 to take part, helping raise money and awareness. Every woolly item worn will help us Warm Up Calderdale and Kirklees and reach out to even more older people.
Get Bobble Day off to a great start with a Warming Morning. Whether you serve up speciality teas, frothy coffee or hot chocolate with whipped cream, you can ensure your friends and families begin the day with a warm feeling inside. Why stop there? Give your guests home-baked cookies to dunk or serve up bacon butties for breakfast.
