Do you help run a club or charity that benefits older people? Are you planning a new initiative that could do with a financial boost?

Good news! Cosyfeet, the company that makes extra-roomy footwear for swollen feet, offers an annual Community Project Award of £750.

Whether your project is run by a registered charity or a not-for-profit organisation, you can apply for the award. The scheme aims to boost community projects in Britain that are supporting and enriching older people’s lives.

Many of Cosyfeet’s customers are over 65. This is an age group which is often affected by loneliness and isolation.

Projects that keep older people active

With this in mind, Cosyfeet is supporting this annual initiative for older people.

“The Cosyfeet Community Project Award is available to projects that benefit older people and provide them with a sense of community,” says managing director Andrew Peirce.

“We support projects that

  • offer practical and emotional support
  • keep older people active or
  • give them the chance to socialise.”

Spades and wheelbarrows

Balby Allotments Group were the proud winners of last year’s Cosyfeet Community Project Award.

They used the £750 award to buy Backsaver spades and wheelbarrows. This specialist equipment is helping older gardeners in the group, who can now continue to enjoy working in their gardens.
