Did you know that Edinburgh is the loneliest city in the UK for older people?

This Christmas season, two in five over 60 year old's will have the television as their main form of company.   

The good news is that Vintage Vibes is an award-winning citywide project started in 2015 to tackle loneliness and isolation through one to one friendships and fun-loving groups

We're on a quest to reconnect older people who are experiencing loneliness and isolation with their local community and wider society. 

But we also need YOU!  

This year, a number of our VIPs (lonely over 60s) will be alone around Christmas.

With your help, we can make their lives brighter and cosier.

We're asking you to send a Vintage Vibes Christmas Card to someone experiencing loneliness this festive season.  

It's quick, simple to do, and absolutely FREE

Step One:

Simply Text 'Cosy' to 70300

Or email hello@vintagevibes.org.uk or visit 'Request Your Card'

Note: You will be charged the normal text rate for your text. Contact your provider for details.

Step Two:

We will send you one of our Christmas packs including a profile of a VIP and a blank Christmas card.

Step Three:

Write a friendly message to one of our fabulous VIPs which we will include a profile of in the pack we send you. Visit our FAQ page here for more information.  

Step Four:

Send your card back in the enclosed free-post envelope or drop it off at Cuckoo's Bakery at 116 Bruntsfield Place or 150 Dundas Steet and that's it! Hurrah!
