Do you help run a club or charity that benefits older people? Are you planning a new initiative that requires a financial boost?
Cosyfeet, the company that makes extra roomy footwear for swollen feet, offers an annual Community Project Award of £750. It’s available to registered charities or not-for-profit organisations working on community projects within Britain that support and enrich older people’s lives.
Many of Cosyfeet’s customers are over 65, an age group often affected by loneliness and isolation. With this in mind, Cosyfeet supports an initiative for older people each year with the Cosyfeet Community Project Award.
“Our award is available to community projects that benefit older people and provide them with a sense of community,” says Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “We support projects that offer practical and emotional support, keep older people active or give them the chance to socialise.”
West Faversham Community Centre were the proud winners of last year’s Cosyfeet Community Project Award. The £750 award funded the purchase of three Samsung Galaxy tablets, which local teenagers now use to teach older people how to communicate online.
