How can we get involved?

There are a number of ways your organisation can partner with us.

Choose Age UK County Durham as your Charity of the Year

Please consider choosing Age UK County Durham as your business Charity of the Year. In return we could offer joint branding on our fundraising materials and our events, as well as positive PR and local media coverage.

Sponsor one of our activities or events

Your staff could get involved in our activities and events thoughout the year, such as our annual Big Knit challenge (with Age UK with Innocent Smoothies) or our Christmas Hamper appeal. By sponsoring us you are helping us with the costs and in return get some great PR and local media coverage.

Display a collection tin

Could you display a collection tin in your office or shop? This would help us to collect much needed donations to continue our vital work in County Durham.

Donate a raffle prize or service

Could you donate a prize for one of our many fundraising raffles and competitions - perhaps a bottle of wine, box of chocolates or biscuits, bath goodies, gift vouchers, or free services?

Donate items for our charity shop

If you would like to donate furniture, clothing or bric-a-brac, we would be very grateful. These would be sold in our charity shop to raise funds that would be spent in County Durham.  Our motto is donate local, buy local, funds stay local.

Send employees to volunteer

Could you send a team to help out at an event or activity? It's a great way for staff to bond by working together to help vulnerable older people. Previous staff teams have served lunches, helped in our charity shop, provided IT help to older people .

Run a fundraising event

Your employees could run their own fundraiser to help raise vital funds for our work. They could do a cake sale, dress down day, a sponsored walk or run, or a raffle. There's so many things they could do - contact us for more ideas!
