There are many ways to fundraise for Age UK Lewisham and Southwark, whether it is running a marathon, hosting an event or your own idea.
This year we received fantastic support and would like to say a huge thank you to all.
Sally ran the Big Fun Run at Crystal Palace on Saturday 31st October to raise funds for us.
She says; 'I chose Age UK Lewisham and Southwark as my grandparents live in Forest Hill and Bermondsey. In their old age it is a great comfort to know that charities like Age UK Lewisham and Southwark are out there should they ever need it. They did so much to care for us when we needed it, so we must ensure that help is available when they need it too.'
Please consider donating to Sally's Justgiving page here.
We would like to say Thank you to Forest Hill School who, with the help of First Give, recently donated £1,000 to our services.
Students worked in small teams to research the needs of their local area and identify a charity they believe is best placed to support their community. One group selected Age UK Lewisham and Southwark and presented their reasons why at their school final.
They were selected as the winning team and were granted a total of £1,000 to support our work.
Congratulations to the winning team and thank you!

We are always here to help by providing advice and ideas on how to make your fundraiser the best that it can be. We can provide you with posters, flyers, collection goblets, fundraising tips and sponsorship forms.

Get a few of your friends and colleagues together to bake some scrumptious cakes and cookies to sell at your workplace. Always aim to raise at least three times more than you spent, for example, if you spend £10 on ingredients aim to raise around £30.
