The owner of Bubbles Launderette in Teddington, Mark Yelle, is supporting Age UK, by holding an event called:

Bubbles, Biscuits and Blankets

The event will take place on Sunday, 14th September and aims to helo the older people in the Richmond upon Thames community in a very real and tangible way. 

Mark says,

"As you will know, many elderly people face a choice between “heating or eating” during the cold winter months and many also lead a solitary existence. In response to these issues, I have decided to make a difference in my local area by holding a light hearted day out so that I can, at least, ensure they have hygienic blankets and bedcovers to keep them warm during those vulnerable times.

"The event will offer an opportunity for older members of the community to come to the launderette and have their blankets etc professionally cleaned at no cost. My team and I will also be offering refreshments and company, providing a social environment in which visitors can relax and enjoy themselves while we serve them."

Mark has long been a passionate supporter of Age UK and is inviting everyone to get involved in the event by encouraging your older family, friends and neighbours to go along and make use of this great FREE service.  Better still, mark it in your own diary, and come along yourselves as well to support Mark and his team at this generous event.

Mark is also asking people to help him in raising vital funds for the Charity, which seeks to help those in later life who are dependant, unsupported, lonely and facing hardship.  You can help by popping over to the fundraising page here  which has been set up to raise money and making a donation.
