Giving Back 2021

Re-engage

Every year at AJW Distribution, we choose a main charity on which to focus our fundraising efforts.

For 2021, we have chosen to support Re-engage

This charity came to light to the business after Andy our Marketing Assistant signed up to be a volunteer during lock-down 1 in 2020.

Through-out 2021 the AJW team will be doing as much as possible to raise money for this great charity. If we are allowed to run an event later in the year to aim for double figures.

Raising money for good causes!

Who we are: Re-engage is committed to older people being heard, valued and engaged.

Over the last 20 years, the number of people over 75 who live alone has gone up to 2.2m

All too often, loneliness is the reality for older people and nearly half of older people say the TV is their main source of company.

Social isolation and loneliness are more than an emotional experience, they have huge mental and physical health implications. Older people living alone are significantly more likely to experience health problems, visit their GP or attend A&E.

As the ageing population continues to grow, so does the epidemic of loneliness among older people. We’re the only charity solely committed to tackling this problem by helping older people to re-engage with their communities through regular social contact, giving them a lifeline of friendship and, vitally, something to look forward to.

A message from the Reengage CEO Meryl Davies

We are immensely grateful to AJW Distribution for choosing Re-engage as their charity of the year. The older people we work with are incredibly isolated and the regular contact provided by our services can be a lifeline. The support of AJW Distribution’s employees and customers will make a real difference. Thanks to their support, older people will have treasured opportunities to make new friends and, crucially, something to look forward to.
