Loneliness plaguing pensioners
OVER a third of people aged 65 and above in the South West feel lonely, according to new research.
Age UK, a leading charity for older people, and pioneering online young people's charity YouthNet have come together to tackle loneliness and isolation across generations.
The charities are calling on runners to take part in the next Virgin London Marathon in April to raise money for an innovative new service which will see 700 young volunteers help 10,000 isolated older people to get online.
As official charities for the 2013 Virgin London Marathon, Age UK and YouthNet have 350 guaranteed places and are looking for people with their own place in the race to also join the team.
