Cosyfeet

Do you help run a club, group or charity that benefits older people? Could your organisation do even more with a £500 award?

Cosyfeet, the company that makes extra-wide footwear for swollen feet, offers an annual Community Award of £500. It’s available to registered charities or not-for-profit organisations working on projects within Britain that support and enrich older people’s lives.

Regenerate-RISE were the proud winners of last year’s ‘Cosyfeet Community Award’. The organisation aims to eradicate loneliness and isolation among older people. They used the award to help fund a ‘Dream Wall’ initiative, which aims to promote emotional wellbeing. Clients are encouraged to write their ‘dream’ on the ‘Dream Wall’ and sponsorship is raised to cover the costs

So far, money from the Cosyfeet Community Award has been used to help fund riding lessons for a man with learning difficulties, a cinema trip with popcorn for an elderly gentleman who hadn’t been to the pictures in many years, and a shopping trip with lunch for an elderly lady.

Cosyfeet specialises in extra roomy footwear, socks and hosiery. Many of their customers are over 65, an age group often affected by loneliness and isolation. With this in mind, Cosyfeet have decided to support one initiative for older people each year with the Cosyfeet Community Award.

“We aim to support groups that provide practical and emotional help, keep older people active or give them a chance to socialise,” says Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “It might be a friendship group, a lunch club, a telephone befriending service, an exercise class or even a special interest group – anything that helps older people feel part of their community.”
