Fundraising for us is a great way of bringing friends, family and neighbours together, as well as helping vulnerable older people who are lonely and isolated and in need of our services. These are people in your area, they might live across the road or maybe even next door.
Perhaps you could organise a coffee morning, sponsored dog walk or kids picnic, get a swear box on the go in the office or get people to sponsor you to stop eating chocolate for a week!
Or maybe you could sell something on eBay and give us the proceeds, or take part in a run and get your friends and family to sponsor you.
If you work for a business, why not organise a staff pub quiz, darts tournament or football match, with an entry fee to raise money for us? Could you match fund what's raised? See our other ideas for getting your organisation involved.
Whatever you choose to do, we can help market your event across our social media and on our website.
We rely heavily on the goodwill and support of local people and the business community to help us do that and greatly value every donation we receive.

The Big Knit 2017
For over 10 years people have kindly knitted and donated thousands of little hats for Age UK Barnet raising money through the national Big Knit campaign. The hats are worn by little bottles of innocent drinks which go on sale in stores around the country in November. For each hat that we send off, Age UK Barnet gets 25p from Innocent Drinks.
