Age UK – The Hoot Magazine Issue 34 – Winter 2012-13


Welcome to our Winter edition of HOOT.
This edition includes the second part of our ‘Get Set for Winter’ advice which we hope you will find useful. Don’t forget you can always contact our Information and Advice staff for help if you are struggling to keep warm, for example because of high energy costs.Other features include information about our new telephone friendship service ‘Call in Time’, which aims to reduce loneliness and isolation, a report on our latest ITea and biscuits event, aimed at encouraging older people to access the internet, and details of our forthcoming ‘Carols in the Cathedral’ event in December.There is also a thank-you for everyone who helped us raise money by knitting little hats and to the local branch of the Tesco Retired Staff Association, who recently donated £400 raised at coffee mornings.Stay warm and have a lovely Christmas and New Year. In the meantime we hope to see many of you at the Christmas event on 21 December.
