Do you help run a club or charity that benefits older people? Do you have a specific project that you’d like to get off the ground?
Cosyfeet, the company that makes extra roomy footwear for swollen feet, is offering an award of £750 as part of their Community Project Award. 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.”
Swanage Disabled Club were the proud winners of last year’s Cosyfeet Community Project Award. This wonderful charity used the money to rent a sea front beach hut for its members, to coincide with the Swanage Carnival and Regatta.
