New name but same service

A CHARITY is changing its name but will continue to provide the same service for elderly residents in Todmorden.

Age Concern Todmorden will become Age UK Todmorden this month. To mark the change, an open day will be held at the office, 11 Burnley Road, on Saturday April 14.

The event, from 11am until 3pm, will also celebrate 40 years of the charity supporting older people in Todmorden.

Catherine Rosborough, from Age UK Todmorden, said: “We are inviting Todmorden people to join us for tea and cake and to find out more about what we do.”

Mayor of Todmorden Coun Richard White will attend and cut a special cake.
