Age UK state that over 1 million people aged 65+ in the UK are lonely. Our award-winning Extra Time programme, supported by our Bronze Patrons O2 Burnley, helps tackle issues such as loneliness and social isolation, as well as helping to increase participation in physical activity among the senior community. Our friendly and welcoming team provide a range of activities to get involved in.
