Louise Crossman Architects provided a boost to the work of Age UK Somerset recently with the presentation of a cheque for £1,475 that had been collected by the Practice. For several years Louise Crossman Architects has run a scheme whereby a minimum donation of £25 is requested for an initial consultation or for advice and the money is donated to a charity chosen each year by the Practice.
Other charities supported in this way in previous years include Friends of Somerset Churches and Chapels, Devon Historic Churches Trust, Shelter, SeeAbility and Somerset Coast Home Improvement.
Louise Crossman commented: “Age UK Somerset helps many older people in Somerset and North Somerset and we are delighted to have been able to support their work in this way. Understanding better the needs arising from an ageing population has informed our design work.”
Age UK Somerset works across Somerset and North Somerset to promote the wellbeing of all older people and make later life a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.
Sarah Cummins from Age UK commented: “Age UK Somerset is extremely grateful to Louise Crossman Architects for the donations collected by the Practice over the last couple of years. These donations have helped us to continue to deliver vital services to older people across Somerset and North Somerset.”
