                         **  SPECIAL EVENT **   

     Come & Buy and support the Elderly in Ukraine

A local one week ‘Come and Buy to Support Ukraine’ event is taking place.

The Age Concern Ayr shop at 5 Crown St Ayr, KA8 8BY is holding a special ‘Buy to Support Humanitarian Aid for Ukraine’s Elderly’ event.
From Mon 25th April through to Sat 30th April 2022, every penny from every sale will be sent to the Ukraine Humanitarian Aid for its Elderly Appeal via the UK registered charity, ageInternational.org.uk


Age Concern Ayr’s shop is run entirely by volunteers and invites everyone to visit and buy and in doing so contribute to supporting the humanitarian work of ageInternational during this current time of conflict in Ukraine.
For those who cannot get down to its shop for this event but still would like to help, ageInternational’s Ukraine page can be found online here: https://www.ageinternational.org.uk/donation/ukraine-appeal/#step1 and they can also be contacted by phone 0800 032 0699

 

***********************

Thanks to support from individual donors, our shop has substantial stock to allow us to sell pre loved goods and donations back to the local community at really affordable prices.  It  is run entirely by Age Concern Ayr’s greatest resource: a team of dedicated volunteers.  The shop exists purely on donations handed in from members of the public.  Where we cannot sell, we recycle to reduce our carbon footprint and salvage accounts for a considerable portion of our annual income.  Please visit our Shop page for more information.

Our Goal

Our Shop and Advice & Information Centre allow us the privilege to strive to provide relief for our elderly community, especially those in need by reason of age, ill health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.   We see our outlets as services and facilities sustained by and offered back to the local community and both necessary for the purpose of reducing hardship and disadvantage: in effect ‘action for the elderly’.

Our two resources, our Charity Shop and our Advice & Information Centre provide opportunities for our local population to support its elderly community.   Our shop offers loads of pre-loved items at great prices.  The funds from this allow us to run a free and confidential advice and information service to help you and provide advice on benefits, general information and much more. Our Advice & Information centre exists to create the best possible outcomes for elderly people by providing practical support and advice to those experiencing a feeling of being left behind by amongst other things today’s technology where every application seems to be online and details asked for digitally. We recognise this does not sit easily with our elderly communities so we try to bridge that gap in whatever way we can. Please visit our Advice & Information Centre page to find out if we can help you. We are always looking for Volunteers so why not give us a call on 01292 265304
