Contact us on email@example.com for more information.
How can we get involved?
There are a number of ways your organisation can partner with us.
Choose Age UK Doncaster as your Charity of the Year
Please consider choosing Age UK Doncaster as your business Charity of the Year like the Frenchgate Centre did in 2019.
Sponsor one of our events
Your staff could get involved in our events thoughout the year, such as our annual Bake-off contest and summer garden party. By sponsoring an event you help us with the costs, for example, food and decorations, 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 Doncaster.
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? We also collect items to donate for end of year hampers for older people who will be on their own in the festive season.
If you would like to donate a piece of equipment, we would be very grateful. We usually need raiser chairs for people in our day centre, kitchen equipment for our lunch clubs, and computer equipment for our staff.
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 Christmas lunches, taken older people on days out, painted our day centre, and revamped our garden. Could your team donate their corporate expertise? We'd welcome in-kind advice on developing digital services or a number of other matters.
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!
