I Can Do That: Post bag.

Byline: Tom Dowling

THANKS to all the people in companies, post offices, churches, clubs and pubs on Merseyside who donated all of their holiday francs, pesetas and deutschmarks in aid of the Universal Beneficient Society (UBS), Survival Income for the Elderly at Home.

The latest figure raised is a magnificent pounds 1,800, far more than we expected.

UBS supports more than 1,100 elderly people nationally, 130 on Merseyside.

Help includes providing a small additional income guaranteed for life, supplying free Christmas hampers and a cash gift, providing bedding and emergency clothing packs.

The people who we help are over the age of 70 living in their own homes or rented accommodation, usually alone, and existing on the basic state pension with no or minimal savings.

We are also actively seeking additional volunteers to visit our beneficiaries in their own homes.

If there is someone who you think may benefit from UBS please get in touch with me: Debbie Kehoe, UBS, PO Box 23, Prenton, Birkenhead CH43 OWV. Tel: 0151 513 3837
