John Lewis adopts age charity

Retailer has chosen Contact the Elderly as its charity of the year

John Lewis has adopted Contact the Elderly as its charity of the year.

The company, which previously supported Wallace & Gromit's Children's Foundation, will fundraise and support volunteering at Contact the Elderly.

The charity, which hopes to raise £150,000 from the deal, has a network of 350 volunteering groups, which organise events for older people.

The money it raises will maintain these groups and, it hopes, set up new ones.

Kate Green, corporate affairs coordinator at John Lewis, said staff could help the charity nationally and locally.

"Contact the Elderly is a charity that matches our values very well," she added.
