The charity, based mainly around Preston and South Ribble, acts to support people to live life and age well.

They help to promote independence and ease isolation where possible.

To mark the 5th anniversary, Age Concern would like to highlight their need for more volunteers to help with the fantastic charitable work that they do.

They are calling for you to come forward and spend some of your time helping their shops in fundraising and supporting the local communities.

The charity already has a strong presence in Lostock Hall and Bamber Bridge, with their Friendship Club on Lourdes Avenue, and charity shops at Hope Terrace and Station Road.

Catherine Parkinson, from Age Concern, said: “Our charity shops are an important means by which we can raise funds and translate this into action to support older people.

“As well as helping to fundraise, our local shops have become part of their communities and have regular customers who come in as much to browse as to have some social contact and say hello to a familiar and friendly face.

“We want to highlight our need for more volunteers to contribute to the great work and wonderful teams that sustain the shops and the funds they raise.”
