Margaret Cook is one of many older adults in Southampton who have felt less isolated during lockdown because of the work of the city's Premier League club.
"When lockdown first hit I was very, very upset because it meant I couldn't do things that I normally do. I had nothing. I felt dreadful.
"Saints Foundation came in as an absolute lifeline."
Margaret recognises the impact the Foundation has had on her mental and physical wellbeing.
"In the beginning stages they all did different pieces of video so you could still do the exercises," she explains.
"Going on the walks and meeting the different people, it's lovely. And of course the exercise [too]."
During lockdown the Foundation has made weekly phone calls, hosted socially distanced walking sessions, produced a radio programme and additional online video resources, all to keep the local elderly active and healthy.

Here's our Senior Saints putting their fitness and technology skills to the test on Zoom earlier this week.

And to help ensure Margaret and other isolated senior citizens continue to receive support, Saints Foundation has set up a fundraising page.
