If a tough day has left you feeling a bit prickly🌵, fear not, friends, as I’m here to share some #Instagood love guaranteed to warm your cockles and put a spring in your downtrodden step! Today is #InternationalDayofCharity, and included herewith is a mere sprinkling of some of the amazing charities who are really smashing it in their promotion of #kindness, #friendship and #community building, as well as raising the bar when it comes to tackling #loneliness amongst the #elderly (and, indeed, among people of all age groups). Here’s sending out a whoop whoop and a hip, hip hooray to the many charitable movers and shakers out there who are scattering #compassion and #positivity in bucket loads, truly making difference to people’s lives on a daily basis. There are too many to list within the confines of an Insta post, but just a handful of the inspiring #charity orgs keeping a much-needed eye out for our #olderpeople and rocking my boat at the moment include @marmalade_trust, @contact_teas, @thefriendlybench, @independentage, @age_uk, @helpageint, @edencommunities, @greatgettogether, @alzheimerssoc and @vintagevibesed, to name but a few. Sooo, what are you waiting for, friends? Why not go forth and fill your day/evening with some uplifting charitable changemaker-filled content. I promise it won’t be time wasted! #EndLoneliness #Connection #MentalHealth #CharityComms
