Fundraising at work -

Why not suggest a casual dress down day or ask your company to nominate Age UK Plymouth as their Charity of the year - they may even have a charitable trust or fund that could donate to us and many will £ match your fundraising. We would be pleased to arrange a visit to your company to discuss options for support.

Local Community Groups, eg-

Rotary, Lions, Ladies Circle and many more are extremely dedicated charity fundraisers and generally choose a different charity to support each year. If you are a member, or know someone who is, we would be delighted to work with them and we can provide speakers and information to assist with fundraising.
