Show us your slippers!        Image shows previous participants wearing slippers.  A collage of slipper photographs to include: novelty slippers, pre-school children in nightwear and slippers, close aerial view of legs showing one foot put forward into a circle wearing a slipper, a group of 5 adults wearing slippers one of them passing a cheque to a member of staff from Age UK Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.



Over the past year we have supported thousands of people, providing hours of support, from delivering practical help such as fitting a grab rail to enable someone to get in and out of the shower unaided, to providing friendship, reducing isolation and loneliness.

We need to raise our own funds to support so many people. We do this is a variety of ways and are funded by commissioned services (i.e. local authorities and NHS) and grants, but must also rely upon donations and the fundraising efforts of others.  This is where you can help – please.

The year before the pandemic we decided to create an annual fundraising event. One that was fun, easy to do, easy to donate, easy to share. Sharing is important as we also need help in raising awareness of our charity so older people, their families and carers know we are here and able to help them.

Do you think you could help us to fundraise, and join our Slip into Slippers Campaign this year?

  • Can you encourage your work colleagues, friends, clubs, school to fundraise for us?
  • Can you make a donation?
  • Can you share a photo of your slippers in social media?

Any one of the above things will help us – we hope you can do them all!

When?   Friday 7th October 2022

We chose an annual focus day for our Slip into Slippers Campaign as the first Friday in October based on the United Nations International Day of Older Persons which is held annually on 1st October. On this day communities are invited to come together and celebrate the privilege of aging. We think that is a great date to celebrate and value the older people in our lives. Of course, if this date is not convenient you can choose another date around this time, as we’d like you to join in!

What?  Show us your Slippers!

Wear them (if you choose on your feet!), decorate them, have a laugh with friends, involve your furry friends - photographing your pets in, or with, your slippers!

Do a sponsored event (always remember safety) in your slippers.

Next take a photo, with you in it, or just your feet, or a group of feet adorned with slippers. Share your photos in your social media and tag us @ageukcap and use hashtag #slipintoslippers2022.

Please make a donation, the suggested amount is £3.00, or more if you can! Remember we need to fundraise, and every penny raised will be spent in our own services delivering direct support for local older people (living in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough area).
