It's a shocking statistic, but more than 1.2 million older people are chronically lonely in the UK, including more than 31,000 in West Yorkshire. The money you help raise through the Abbey Dash allows us to continue to provide companionship and support to those who have no one to turn to.

About the Dash Corporate Challenge

Start fundraising today

Fundraising for Age UK couldn't be simpler. Simply set up your personal fundraising page on JustGiving, and start making a huge difference to the lives of older people.

  • Raise your time - Why not set your fundraising target as the finishing time you’re chasing at this year’s Dash? Sweating for a sub-35 or happy with an hour - it all counts!
  • Dressed to dash - We love spotting a variety of fancy dresses on our course. Pluck up the courage and dress to impress in exchange for sponsorship from friends.
  • Matched funding - Don't forget that whatever you raise could be matched by your employer.

Whatever you raise, every penny will help us reach more chronically lonely older people all over the country.

Manage your fundraising

A JustGiving fundraising page makes it easy for your friends and family to give money to you online. You can also download our sponsor forms to manage your offline fundraising.

Your #TeamAgeUK Abbey Dash stories

As a GP, I have first-hand experience of your fabulous work and believe that without Age UK's support so many of those whom I care for would not maintain their independence and dignity.
