Winter Welfare Wednesdays – Working with Age UK

The Insanity Radio Community Team have been working with Age UK Runnymede and Spelthorne this term, to create an exciting campaign known as ‘Winter Welfare Wednesdays’. Its main aim was to combat loneliness in older individuals, especially during the winter months.

It involved members of the Community Team having a natter with older individuals, talking about their experiences as well as looking ahead towards future goals they would like to achieve. They also gave strong advice to individuals who are facing a lonely Christmas. These interviews were then broadcast on the Community Hour (Wednesdays, 6-7pm). You can listen back to these interviews any time on our Soundcloud and Mixcloud accounts:

I would like to personally thank all the team here at Insanity Radio for making this campaign an exciting and heart warming experience. I would also like to thank Age UK Runnymede and Spelthorne for all their help in bringing this campaign to life. Finally, I would like to thank all the individuals we interviewed: you are all radio stars and are welcome back any time on Insanity Radio!
