A big Thank You to Robert for running the Bristol Half Marathon on the 17th September!

Our supporter Robert Malpass gave himself a big challenge this year, running two half marathons within two weeks. He ran the Bristol half marathon on the 17th September and he is running the Glasgow half marathon two weeks later! Good luck on the Glasgow Half, Robert!

We are so happy that he has chosen Age UK Bristol as his chosen charity for this challenge. So far he has raised an amazing £992. With the Gift Aid, this makes a brilliant £1,240 for Age UK Bristol and supporting older people in the city. Have a look at his fundraising page here.

Age UK Bristol is an independent local charity responsible for our own services and fundraising. Every pound that we raise in Bristol, stays in Bristol. We rely on supporters like Robert to help us continue our services. We provide a range of services to older people throughout Bristol, including our Information and Advice service and Housing Support. Our services are available to everyone over the age of 55 who lives or works in Bristol. We are a part of the Age UK network, complying with their quality standards, while raising our own resources.

Are you doing a challenge in 2018? Running the Bristol 10k in May 2018 or maybe the Half Marathon in September? You could make Age UK Bristol your charity of choice. We would love to have your support and every pound raise makes a real difference to the older people in Bristol. Signing up for online fundraising is easy and we can send you some tips and hints. We will also spread the word on our website and social media. Think about how you can support Age UK Bristol and get in touch, fundraising@ageukbristol.org.uk.
