In 2016, SC Johnson and Age UK came together to help lonely older people, raising over £130,000 through a cause-related product, supporting fundraising events and getting staff volunteering.
A key part of our work together was to raise awareness of loneliness among the public and show SC Johnson’s dedication to tackling it. We did this through a cause-related product, a Glade candle, which was on sale in supermarkets nationwide, with a donation for each product sold going to Age UK.
Staff also got involved locally, hosting and volunteering at a Christmas Party for older people in Frimley. They served food, chatted to guests and even organised a children’s choir to attend.
One guest said: 'Thank you so much for inviting me. I'm not doing anything on Christmas day so it’s wonderful to be able to celebrate here.'
SC Johnson also supported Age UK’s Christmas carol concert, Love Christmas, and our telephone befriending programme.
