Fundraising events

Our challenge participants are heroes! There are so many ways to raise money for Age Cymru. Whether you want to run, cycle or skydive, knit, sing or bake, the money you raise will ensure we can continue to be here for older people in Wales when they need us the most.

By completing a challenge you will not only be achieving a huge personal goal, you'll also be raising much needed funds to go towards helping vulnerable older people across Wales.


Why not get involved in our Big Knit - we ask you to knit tiny woollen hats, and each one gets placed on an innocent smoothie bottle.
