Fundraising is important to our success, why not get involved?

Show your support for Age UK Dover by getting involved in our fundraising activities.

Our activities are supported through sales in our charity shop and donations but fundraising plays an important part in raising the money we need to provide our services in support of older people in Dover and the surrounding area,

Fundraising events are a great way of getting the public and organisations involved with our charity’s goals and spreading the word about our work in the community.

We organise fundraising activities and events and you can create your own event to raise funds and nominate us as your chosen charity.

Funding

Age UK Dover receives grants from the local governing bodies to help keep the service we provide running. We also receive donations and legacies, to which we are extremely grateful and donations to our charity shops provide a vital income.

We also provide daily services that generate income. These vital services not only raise money to help cover the day to day costs of the Administrations Offices, but they provide a vital service to the local community.

Fundraising

At Age UK Dover, we are proactive in trying to raise funds for the delivery of our services.

We hold our own fundraising events to help bolster the budget with the help of our volunteers and staff and we are incredibly thankful for their continued support and effort, and the contributions they provide for Age UK Dover, but we welcome fundraising by others.

Details of our fundraising activities will be posted here so please look again.
