Alex’s work with charities
Alex is a digital marketing consultant helping his clients
use the web and the latest technology to connect with their customers.
Alex has spent the last 18 months working with Independent
Age, a charity helping to tackle loneliness and other issues facing older
people. Alex will step down from his role in November but describes the work as
some of the most rewarding he has ever done.
Alex says: “old age is something most young people try their
best not to think about, but thankfully charities like Independent Age do.
“If somebody in their thirties is bereaved, counselling is
readily available. When you’re older, people just see death as part of life so
older people have to suffer alone – when actually it’s a time support is needed
more than ever.”
Alex has also worked for Action Against Abduction, the
charity set up by Lady Catherine Meyer, that helps families ripped apart by
Locally Alex has supported the St Nicholas Festival which
helps children at Christmas, and whenever possible tries to raise money for the
Food Bank. He made the news after he and two friends carried out a sponsored
weight loss and spent the money they raised on four shopping trollies of
goodies for the hungry.
Alex said: “others really need this food, I certainly don’t.
Glad to have lost some weight and been able to help out at the same time.”

don’t get much publicity but do amazing work. If you know of one, please get in
touch and tell him about it. He may be able to help…
