A word of thanks from ALONE.
We would like to offer you our sincere thanks for your continued support for ALONE since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Ireland. If you are planning any news items or features on COVID-19, older people, loneliness, isolation, etc. over Christmas, we would greatly appreciate if you could continue to mention ALONE’s National Support Helpline, 0818 222 024.
