BBC Radio 4 appeal

We're delighted to announce that Anne Reid, celebrated actress and Last Tango in Halifax star, is to present an Independent Age fundraising appeal for BBC Radio 4 . The appeal focuses on the “silent epidemic” of loneliness among older people and tells the story of one of our members, Ron, who lost his wife two years ago.

Tune into BBC Radio 4 on Sunday, 29 March at 7.54am and 9.25pm.
