Rothesay Life partners with Age UK to battle loneliness in later life

29th December 2014

Rothesay Life Limited, a leading life insurer specialising in pension scheme de-risking, has extended its support to Age UK by sponsoring the Charity’s star-studded ‘Love Christmas’ carol concert, which was held at St Paul’s Cathedral on Thursday 18th December 2014 and raised over £130,000.

Rothesay Life has previously sponsored Age UK’s Bereavement Guide – a booklet which offers practical and emotional support to older people after bereavement.

We are delighted to be able to support Age UK again. We started working with the charity earlier this year because we were impressed by its excellent work with people in later life - a worthy cause that we are particularly close to.

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Age UK as we both strive to help people make the most of later life.
