Older people of Kintyre, do you think Shopper-Aide can help you?

Mabel Rosamond Baxendale née Stewart, daughter of Professor George Stewart, only grandchild of John Stewart, aged 74 in 1990.

Established in 2011, Shopper-Aide is a charity organisation providing grocery shopping, befriending and extra household support services to older people in Kintyre. They aim to enable people to live independently in their homes for as long as possible as well as enabling them to still stay connected with their friends and their local community by allowing them to attend clubs, the shops, medical appointments, the hairdressers and much more. Shopper-Aide are looking for volunteers to help older people in our community, can you give just one hour of your time each week? Try it and see the difference one hour of your time can make. This community is known for its spirit when times get tough, but life is tough for the elderly on a daily basis, especially with winter round the corner. According to Age Scotland, 2 in 5 of the older people say their television is their main form of company and sadly over 1 million older people haven’t spoken to a friend neighbour or family member for at least a month. Together, let’s do the best we can to ensure our community stays out of these harrowing figures.
