There are more than 1 million older people who are chronically lonely. Yet it only takes a minute to make someone’s day.
Christmas and the New Year is one of the loneliest times for older people. That’s why Good Morning Britain is launching the 1 Million Minutes campaign to ask you to pledge just 30 minutes of your time to help an older person.
They have teamed up with The Silver Line, Royal Voluntary Service, Age UK and Campaign to End Loneliness to offer you specific volunteering opportunities or you can just pledge to help an elderly neighbour, friend or relative before Christmas.
So what do you need to do?
Pledge as much time as you can offer using the link below:
