Owen writes:⠀
We are focusing on the amazing work Age Concern does in the elderly community and what you can do to support them. 2.2 Million people aged over 75 suffer from chronic loneliness. Loneliness is a massive issue in society, it affects the young and the old. But as friendship circles deteriorate and family shrinks as we get older, it becomes a deadly issue, so serious that many die of loneliness. Humans are social animals and whether we are introverted or extroverted we all require a little bit of love and attention as we get older, and this is exactly what the Age Concern befriending service does. With countless activity centres up and down the British isles, Age Concern are at the cutting edge of bridging the loneliness gap and bringing the elderly community together, providing services of advice, funding and always a chat and cup of tea!⠀
⠀
Be sure to read the article by the Gazette and Essex county standard today about the challenge starting August 15th, a really lovely write up summing up the challenge⠀

Look out for older people in the heat - It only takes a few minutes to make a phone call or to pop round to your neighbour’s/friend’s/family member’s home and check on them. By doing this you could end up saving someone’s life. #staywellessex #livewell #Colchester #ageconcerncolchester

Introducing Owen Gosling who asks you all for support while he undertakes an eight day fundraising challenge: “Check in with my challenge as I attempt to raise much needed funds for Age Concern by completing the first ever solo, self sufficient circumnavigation of The Island of Arran.”⠀
⠀
Speaking to Owen one will soon understand he feels strongly about the bad press the younger generation have lately received at the hands of the media which he feels isn’t a true reflection of the many youngsters out there who are willing to create a positive vibe within our society by pitching in and helping out. So through this walk, he is reaching out from one generation to another because as he so astutely reminds us, the young are just as likely to encounter loneliness as do older folk particularly when living away from home for the first time. His vision is to raise awareness by doing the walk as a solo adventure so as to demonstrate that the best way to combat loneliness is being active out in the fresh air which we are sure will inspire anyone under strain from being alone for a considerable length of time.⠀
⠀
Owen writes “In Great Britain 2.2 Million people aged over 75 are suffering from Chronic loneliness. Company is the one thing many take for granted and as we get older our circles of company will shrink. Age Concern looks to keep the fresh spirit flowing through the elderly in our community, bridging the gap of loneliness.”⠀
⠀
Owen is chronicling his journey ahead so you can currently catch up with latest news on – facebook and – instagram accessed from our blog page on our official website. We will keep you posted about progress with news of other places where you can view Owen’s story so watch this space! ⠀

We are in the process of planning permission and progressing forwards. We have picked up some costs already and your donation will help us to keep a focus on serving those in poverty and loneliness rather than using those funds for the building work. ⠀

Make the most of the warmer weather this spring. For your reference is a list of activities to do in Colchester appropriate to this time of year.⠀
1. A walk around Castle Park⠀
Open air venues are always a good start: An extra hour of sunlight brings with it an increase in Vitamin D which will lower stress and depression. ⠀
2. Eating Out in Colchester⠀
Why not eat out on the town. If happiness is what you seek, go with friends and soak up some of those feel-good vibes while sharing a meal together:⠀
3. Enjoy tourist attractions⠀
Go and see the sites of Colchester and soak up the historical aspects of the town like the imposing Colchester Castle. Around Colchester mobility need not be a problem as there are plenty of venues offering wheelchair access including those supporting visitors with a disability. ⠀
4. Places to arrange a picnic.⠀
Picnics are a good excuse to pursue outdoor activities in the company of others but best of all, eating in the fresh wide open encourages families, friends, fun and games though for some, forty winks in the sun or a good book is just as splendid.⠀
5. Go see a show. ⠀
Colchester is the home of two wonderful theatres. Time to wear your glad-rags as there is always plenty to watch at the Headgate and Mercury theatres in town. Whatever your choice of entertainment you are guaranteed a thrilling night out.⠀
6.Invest in a bird feeder for bird watching. You don’t have to be that ambitious, a bird seed container in the garden is just as effective for a bird watching session. ⠀
7. Start the spring cleaning.⠀
You can give your home a well deserved makeover this Spring. You never know, something you thought forever lost might come to light again.⠀
8. Plant an herb garden. ⠀
Are you cooking with style? Start growing a herb garden with your favourite spices. ⠀
9. Visit a nursery. ⠀
Nursery gardens are a great place to purchase shrubs to help beautify your indoors. The store will be sure to sell a selection of colourful indoor and outdoor plants to cheer up any room around the house. Some venues include other attractions and restaurants so make it a great day out with the family.
