Please sign and share Age UK free TV licence petition

As you may be aware our colleagues at Age UK are running a campaign entitled Switched Off - a campaign to save FREE television licences for people over the age of 75.

The Age UK campaigns team are focusing on Government who made this decision to push the scheme on to the BBC without providing any funding to sustain the concession for over 75s. This petition will tell the Government that it is their responsibility to look after vulnerable older people, and keeping TV free is a simple but vital way to do this.

So far the online petition had had over 82,000 signatures and if you would like to sign the online petition or share it with your friends and colleagues here it is Free TV licence petition
