It is our privilege to work every single week amongst older people, carers and volunteers who have the energy, will and ability to create positive change in care. L4A is, however, in need of ongoing monthly donations to support this good work improving wellbeing through learning for some of the oldest people in Leicester and Leicestershire.
If you have some spare change each month that you’d like to make a real difference to the lives of older people, please sign up to give a one off or monthly donation here and know that your money is going to support the valuable work of a small, innovative local charity.
Do you shop online? Almost everyone does these days, even our care home residents! Sign up to Give As You Live for free and with every purchase a small percentage of your shopping spending will be donated to L4A, at no cost to you! Make sure you type in our full name of “Learning for the Fourth Age” to nominate us as your charity – happy shopping!
You can also undertake a challenge for sponsorship, like Rozanna recently did when she raised £180 running the Surrey Half Marathon for us in March. More information here. If you have an idea that you’d like to get sponsorship for, please don’t hesitate to contact any of our staff or email firstname.lastname@example.org as we’d love to hear from you.
Thank you in advance for your ongoing support.
As well as volunteer learning mentor roles, we also have other positions for volunteers. From administrative staff to one off session facilitators to members of our advisory board, there are ways for all sorts of people to be involved with L4A.
Residents love art and craft sessions, ballroom dancing and learning or developing languages. They have a wide range of interests and so we can find a volunteer role to suit most people.
Here is a video of some of our previous volunteers discussing their experiences:
