Engage Befriending

How can I support the work of Engage Befriending?

Since being set up in 2013, Engage Befriending has seen demand for its service continue to grow. We rely on grants and donations to fund the work that we do across the Reading Borough. Our aim is to reach out to more of those affected by loneliness and isolation.

Shop with Savoo

You can now show your support for the Mustard Tree when you use Savoo Search, Save and Raise as your online shopping platform. Your efforts cost you nothing because Savoo donates on your behalf. Simply use Savoo Search as your default search engine (the same way as you would your current search engine) and Savoo will donate 1p for every search. If you're looking to do some online shopping and want to get a great deal, Savoo has thousands of voucher codes and deals that will help you save money & they will donate to The Mustard Tree at the same time.

Organise an event

Perhaps you could host a coffee morning or cake sale. In doing so you can raise money to support those who are isolated and can't get together with family and friends, which is often a real source of fun and support.

However you choose to support us. Thank you! It will make a vital difference to the older people of Reading.
