ALONE, the charity that provides support to older people in need, is calling on the women of Ireland to participate in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon in aid of ALONE. The charity aims to raise money to go towards the provision of vital befriending services for vulnerable older people.

This year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon takes place in Dublin city centre on bank holiday Monday, June 1.

One of ALONE’s key activities is their befriending service whereby volunteers are matched with an older person whom they then visit every week. ALONE are currently working with other befriending groups to ensure no older person is left isolated and lonely.

Registration for the marathon is now open at: www.vhiwomensminimarathon.ie To receive your ALONE mini-marathon pack, email [email protected] or call (01 ) 6791032.
