Citizenship Coursework PART 2: Section 2: Data Help the aged are a charity/organisation that frees disadvantaged older people from poverty, isolation and neglect. The charity was founded in 1961 and has changed the lives of so many elderly ever since. Help the aged has national offices in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. These offices are to help manage areas and regions that need specific types of help for their specific type of elderly people. Also many issues have been targeted and tackled thanks to help the aged such as: * Age discrimination (Especially in the workplace and in health care) * Poverty * Isolation and loneliness The information that I collected helped me understand what HELP THE AGED were and how they help the elderly. The organisation carries out ways to bring a better standard of living so that the remaining time of their lives is peaceful and cared for, as they may not have long left. Information such as this was collected via a secondary source. This source was the help the aged website where allot of information is given out and explains how you can help these people. ...read more.


Almost �900 was raised by Year 11 students who organised a day of events at Kelsey Park Sports College, Manor Way, Beckenham for causes that they chose themselves. These included Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Campaign, Help the Aged, Save the Children, Guide Dogs for the Blind Association and Tofs, a local children's charity. Year 11 set up various activities such as an egg and spoon relay, wheel barrow races, a tug of war, a football tournament and a general knowledge quiz. Jo Neale, the teacher who helped the students organise it, said: "Year 11 managed the entire event and the whole college had a fantastic day." An assembly was held and the charities' representatives were presented with cheques. For more information from Newsshopper here is the link: http://www.newsshopper.co.uk/search/3946103.Beckenham_pupils_hand_over_cash_to_charities/ To spread the information easily across the school, me and my fellow students created a tutor packs that included key information about the charity and its goals. This helped people become more aware and educated them about the importance of donating. these where distributed all around the form by being given to form tutors to give out to their class the morning of the event. ...read more.


Also I had experimented with ways to do the quiz during the event and that caused allot of confusion for other members of the group and even me sometimes. The event in a whole served also as a learning process as it gave an idea of how stressful it can be to manage a large amount of people for a long period. Another thing learnt was that people can always let you down in any situation. If there ever was a fundraising event that I will be involved with in the future I will have a good knowledge on how to maintain order and hopefully keep an event running smoothly. Many people benefited from this event, such as: * Help The Aged: receive money to use on the elderly to help. * The Elderly: receive Help from organisation. * Students: gained knowledge of charities and get used to giving to good causes. * The School: gained good press as students are seen as good Samaritans. Also people learned from the event, such as: * Staff: gained experience in a role of high responsibilities and participating in something for someone else's gain. * Participators: may have been first time confronted with giving to help a cause. ?? ?? ?? ??
