The People Kit has some exciting news to share with the fine people of Norfolk.

As a Business Improvement Specialist, who has traveled globally and always pleased to share some of the best world-class tools and techniques with local organisations, it is the days when I am not discussing sales and profits, that remind me how fortunate most of us are, to be happy, healthy and hopefully, valued or loved by our family members. These special days are often when I meet with my fellow members of The People Kit and in particular, the final selection day for our annual charity.

This year was no exception, with so many worthy charities showing interest, in partnering The People Kit for its 2020 sharing of success.

We are pleased to announce the charity that The People Kit will be supporting this year is Age UK Norwich. How could we ignore this after hearing from the CEO Dan Skipper, about older people in Norwich, who are lonely and struggling with things that we often take for granted. My business ‘Joules Resource Management’ is all about ‘Learning to See’ it will therefore be a pleasure, to learn more about the difficulties being experienced locally and how we can all contribute to a happier and healthy city.

The selection will also see the return of Jeremy Goss, who has recently joined Age UK Norwich and re-connects this inspirational, passionate and caring gent to The People Kit. Jeremy is also currently collaborating with the UEA on Dementia research and the possible links associated with footballers heading the ball.

We look forward to 2020 and the various events being planned. In the meantime, my Kit colleagues are pleased to share a statement from Dan Skipper at Age UK Norwich…

We are delighted to be The People Kit’s charity partner in 2020. We welcome their support and expertise to help us raise the profile of Age UK Norwich and our vital services for older people in the city. We look forward to their premier ‘Great British Food Quiz’ event and other opportunities to collaborate and fundraise over the next year. With a third of our income sourced from fundraising, partnerships such as these are hugely important, enabling our services to reach as many older people as we can.

Dan Skipper, Chief Executive Officer


So let’s make a difference by helping improve the lives of elderly people in Norwich.
