Fundraising is fun

Fundraising is very important to Age UK Hertfordshire. The money you raise goes towards supporting the older people of Hertfordshire.

Man doing a sponsored runAmongst the vital services carried out by Age UK Hertfordshire, the funds you raise could help to provide support to an older person who is experiencing depression or memory loss, help someone regain their independence after a long stay in hospital or go towards the running costs of one of our busy day centres.


As well as helping older people throughout the county with the money you raise, fundraising can also be a great way to have some fun. So why not put the ‘fun’ into fundraising for Age UK Hertfordshire!

We would love to hear from you if you are planning to fundraise in aid of Age UK Hertfordshire. If we are aware that your event is taking place, we can offer support and guidance on how to promote your event and how to ensure it runs smoothly. We would also like the chance to thank you for all your hard work! Please email to let us know your event is taking place, and we will send a Fundraising Pack to you to ensure you have everything covered for your event.
