Although we receive grants for some of our activities, we have no regular guaranteed income.

Gifts to charity are eligible for Gift Aid, under which scheme your donation will be worth almost 1/3 more at no extra cost to you if you pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax which we can reclaim.

Donations in memory
A loved one can be remembered in the future too. You can celebrate the life of a friend or member of your family by choosing to make a donation in their memory instead of having flowers at the funeral. If this is your wish, just tell the Funeral Director who will arrange for their gift in lieu of flowers to be sent direct to Age UK Lancashire.
If you wish to make a lasting contribution to older people in the memory of your loved one, all you need do is contact Age UK Lancashire (tel: 0300 303 1234 or email email@example.com) and we will explain the quickest procedure for doing this.
In addition to donations of money you can also help us by making donations of almost anything to our charity shops, or by donating your time as a volunteer.
