Citizen Ticket are delighted to announce our brand new charity partner Vintage Vibes.

Vintage Vibes is a charitable partnership created to tackle isolation and loneliness among over-60s in Edinburgh, the loneliest city in the UK.

Through connecting volunteers and VIPs (Very Important Pensioners!) with shared interests, they provide personalised companionship and support to those who would otherwise spend their time alone.

Citizen Ticket Co-Founder Harry Boisseau said of the partnership:

“Vintage Vibes’ work to tackle isolation and loneliness in those over 60 is inspirational. An ever increasing problem and one that is rarely spoken about, we see it as a seriously worthwhile cause and one we want to actively support. We are all getting older and it is encouraging to know that there are community support groups like this to help isolated people.”

The organisation’s first event with Citizen Ticket takes place on Sunday 16th September at Summerhall, where they’ll host a swishing clothes swap; guests can bring their pre-loved clothes in exchange for tokens which can be used to take home the gems you find in the collection on the day.

Find out more about the event here, and head to Vintage Vibes’ website for more information on their work and how to get involved.
