Sussex Police raises thousands for Chief Constable's chosen charity

Sussex Police helped to raise almost £30,000 in 2019 for a charity working to combat loneliness among the elderly.

Chief Constable Giles York was delighted to hand the money over to Re-engage - his chosen charity of the year for 2019 - at Sussex Police headquarters in Lewes on Tuesday (February 25).

Re-engage, formerly known as Contact the Elderly, is a registered charity that exists to help the 500,000 older people living in the UK who say they go five or six days a week without speaking to anyone.

It has a very simple concept which involves organising monthly tea parties for people over the age of 75. Guests are paired with volunteer drivers who take them to and from tea parties. The parties are held in the homes of host volunteers, who provide food and sometimes a fun activity.

Sussex Police helped to raise £28,454.84 for the charity through a number of fundraising initiatives including selling mugs, light up pens, scarves, elf letters, Christmas cards and pin badges, and by organising a number of events including a charity quiz night, bingo night, charity golf day, Christmas Extravaganza concert and numerous cake sales.

This was made possible thanks to a number of keen and enthusiastic Sussex Police personnel who volunteered their spare time and energy to help support the Chief Constable's chosen charity.

In addition to the money raised, Sussex Police colleagues have worked hard to raise awareness of the charity, helping to recruit volunteer group co-ordinators, tea party hosts and drivers, as well as signposting lonely and vulnerable older people to the charity as potential guests. On top of that, officers have provided valuable fraud prevention advice and training to the local group co-ordinators who will share this knowledge with their guests.
