Providing vital support over the cold winter months

Christmas can be incredibly isolating for those who do not have friends or family to enjoy the season with. The Octavia Foundation is dedicated to providing vital support and companionship throughout the cold winter months.

To bring some festive cheer, we need your support to raise funds for the 8 social parties we’re holding for 250 local older people –and to keep our life-enhancing befriending service and our advice and support lines running to get help to those who need it most.

Your kindness could make all the difference.

  • £250 could provide enriching entertainment like music, dancing and creative activities across one of our festive parties

“[The party] makes so many people happy, there is also a good mix of younger and older people who are spending time together…It’s amazing”, Attendee of last year’s Octavia Foundation Christmas Party
