We hope that you have had a fantastic Christmas and new year and that you are looking forward to what 2018 will bring you. At Age UK Lambeth we spent 2017 empowering thousands of older people to achieve a full quality of life culminating in our Christmas Day Dinner for 40 people who would otherwise be on their own.
Our 2018 new year’s resolutions are to reach more people, continue to grow and improve our services and raise more money to pay for all of this! Please read on for ways that you could make a resolution to support our resolutions.
Get Fit – why not sign up for a 25km, 50km or 100km ultra challenge to inspire you to get fit and raise money for Age UK Lambeth? There are 8 challenges to choose from and if you sign up before February 11th you can get 2 for 1 on registration fees. Find a friend and sign up today!!! Click here to find out more and register (remember to choose Age UK Lambeth as your charity).
Volunteer – volunteering is a great way to give back to your community in your spare time. We have many roles available including joining a local events fundraising group and befriending. Email email@example.com for more information.
Give something up – if you are quitting something in 2018 why not donate the money that you save to Age UK Lambeth. You can make a donation here
Write a will – Approximately 2/3 of adults have not written a will and 1/3 will go on to die intestate meaning their final wishes will go unheeded. If your new year’s resolution is to get organised and write a will this year then please consider leaving a legacy to Age UK Lambeth. You can find out more by clicking here.
Have more fun -if you haven’t already then why not join My Social? Open to all ages and with FREE membership, being a member of MYsocial gives you access to our calendar of events. We want to help you discover friendships, connect with your community, and do things that make you happy. Click here to find out more and join.
Experience the thrill of a lifetime – if you really want to challenge yourself in 2018 then why not sign up to do a skydive and raise money for us? The ‘drop-zone’ is less than 60 minutes from London and is organised through UK Skydive. Find out more here.
We hope our list has given you some inspiration. Whatever you choose to do in 2018 and whether you set any new years resolutions or not, we hope that you will be doing it alongside Age UK Lambeth.
Thank you for supporting us, best wishes

We have prepared a further draft of the Old Kent Road Area Action Plan which we are consulting on until 21 March 2018. The documents are available to view on our website here.
The plan explains our strategy for the regeneration of the Old Kent Road, including the extension of the Bakerloo Line, to accommodate new homes, provide new jobs, leisure, shopping, parks and transport improvements in a new town centre over the next 20 years.
The council is now consulting on an application for a revised neighbourhood area on behalf of the ‘Old Bermondsey Village Neighbourhood Forum’. Consultation will run for 7 weeks from 14 December 2017 to 1 February 2018.
