The Appeal Edit

In November 2001 the team launched the Wheel help Appeal in aid for Help the Aged which was a special case that would give the team and viewers a chance to help thousands of elderly people,many of whom enjoy the show but are isolated and lonely.

The target was to raise £500,000 to enable older people to get out and meet others. It's estimated that in Britain 29,000 senior citizens are lonely because they find it difficult to leave their homes.
