We are ecstatic beyond measure to be entering the Blenheim Palace Triathlon for a third year running, and have the opportunity to raise much needed funding for the work we do! The money raised may go towards funding a weight lifting class, a gardening club, a Parkinson's support group, coastal excursions, trips to museums, Zumba in the park - the possibilities are endless!

Representing us this year are a merry band of local residents, staff members and volunteers; Jon, Lawrence, Tony, Henry, Leah and Lyndsay; whose willingness to challenge themselves personally and raise awareness for Elders Voice, has impressed us no end.

Every donation makes a difference, as do words of encouragement! So please; sponsor the team, wish them luck and help make ageing a wonderful and worthwhile journey for older people in the London Borough of Brent!

Thank you, Elders Voice x

A Worthwhile Journey from Elders Voice

Fear of getting old is one of the most common fears there is. Perhaps that’s why we marginalise older people; an attempt to suppress reminders of our own mortality. We dread the prospect of physical and mental decline; becoming dependent on others; and experiencing loneliness. But there are ways we can make ageing a thing to embrace rather than something to dread!

Exercise like yoga and weight lifting can help slow physical decline; and learning a new skill like baking or playing the piano can help improve cognitive function. Being socially active and integrated into your community can help alleviate loneliness. To quote Katherine Etsy ‘the opposite of independence is not being dependent, it is community’ - so can we not embody intergenerational care as a core value, rather than treat it as burdensome?

We believe ageing should be a wonderful and worthwhile journey, but for that to happen older adults need access to affordable activities, that have been designed by older adults themselves, in an environment that embraces their differences. By donating to Elders Voice, you can help us make that happen.

Your donation could help fund:

  • A gardening club, so older people can enjoy the benefits of nature and therapeutic effects of gardening.
  • Intergenerational projects such as 'An After School Club That Thinks It's A Restaurant'; where young pupils and older adults cook together and dine together!
  • A weightlifting class, an exercise proven to have a multitude of health benefits for older people.
  • Coastal trips, museum visits and picnics in the park; because it's good to get out once in a while!
