Does your New Year look more rosy than Kate's

To venture out she must face the climb up 82 stairs. As she says, "It's too much when you're 80." From her dismal third floor flat she has to go down to the basement to fetch coal, and up to the fifth floor to dry clothes. However plucky they may be, old people should not have to cope with difficulties like this.

Help the Aged urgently need to promote the building of more flats designed for the needs of brave old people: where they find independence, friendship and a helpful warden on call if needed. .

If your New Year looks more hopeful than Kate's, please join in putting a happy smile on another despairing face. Because of loans available to Help the Aged, every £2 you give provides £40 of housing.

£150 donation names a flat in memory of happy times with someone dear to you. £250 names a double flat. £450 names a common room. £150 inscribes a name on the Founders' Plaque of a new Day Centre for old people.

Every day matters to old people in need. Tear out this advertisement and send with your gift as quickly as possible to:
