These days, the headlines seem to be full of doom and gloom. Luckily, we have some happy news to share today. Our home city of Norwich was recently named the UK’s most caring city!
The Most Caring City in England
The Caring Cities rankings, published by online pension provider PensionBee, compared major towns and cities throughout England. They assessed nine factors overall, including community spirit, charitable contributions, and efforts to protect the environment.
Norwich came out on top overall, followed by Reading (Berkshire) in second place and Swindon (Wiltshire) in third. In addition, Norwich also topped the table for animal shelters and charity shops. There are more than 12 animal shelters and nearly 50 charity shops per 100,000 people here in Norwich, more than any other city in England.
Our Norwich Headquarters
Lifeline24 has been based in Norwich, Norfolk since we were founded back in 2013. We are a family-run business, set up by Norfolk residents Simon and Treena Budd, and we have always been very proud of our roots! The Most Caring City rankings are a wonderful confirmation of what we already know – that the people of Norwich are kind, thoughtful, and caring.
Take our Norwich-based Response Team, for example. The team is full of lovely, caring staff who spend their days helping other people when they need it most. The Response Team will be there at the other end of your Lifeline alarm 24/7.
Charity Work in Norwich
Norwich also ranked third for the number of registered charities, with a whopping 575 charities per 100,000 people! Here at Lifeline24, we’re no strangers to charity work. We run regular fundraisers for local and national charities alike. Here are just a few examples of our charity work over the last few years:
- Cupcake Day for the Alzheimer’s Society
- Lifeline24 Sponsors Hospital Radio Norwich
- The Response Team‘s own Dawn ran 10k for Norwich Community Sports Foundation
- Halloween bake sale for Mind
We also work alongside local and national charities, providing a life-saving alarm service to keep people safe and independent.
