Fundraising.

Every year Age UK Exeter helps and supports over 5,000 older people and their families in the city. We help people living with dementia, people who are lonely and isolated and people who have no one to turn to. While we appreciate it's not always easy to raise sponsorship, we hope you understand that the money raised at this event is essential if we are to continue to support our most vulnerable older people. The people we support could be your neighbour, your parent, your partner or even you.
