To continue our work for older people across the county, Age UK Lancashire is dependent on the generous support of the people of the local area and beyond. Although we receive grants for some of our activities, we have no regular guaranteed income.
Ways to donate
Other Ways to Donate
Donations in memory
A loved one can be remembered in the future too. You can celebrate the life of a friend or member of your family by choosing to make a donation in their memory instead of having flowers at the funeral. If this is your wish, just tell the Funeral Director who will arrange for their gift in lieu of flowers to be sent direct to Age UK Lancashire.
If you wish to make a lasting contribution to older people in the memory of your loved one, all you need do is contact Age UK Lancashire (tel: 0300 303 1234 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will explain the quickest procedure for doing this.
In addition to donations of money you can also help us by making donations of almost anything to our charity shops, or by donating your time as a volunteer.
To support our work throughout the year, regular payments in the form of standing order or direct debit can be made from as little as £2.00 per month. Standing order and Gift Aid Declaration Forms can be obtained from our head office, email at email@example.com.
If you are a basic rate tax payer, payments made under the Gift Aid scheme enable us to recover income tax on your donation at no extra cost to yourself. You only need to complete our Gift Aid Declaration Form.
Gifts to charity are eligible for Gift Aid, under which scheme your donation will be worth almost 1/3 more at no extra cost to you if you pay UK Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax which we can reclaim. In order for us to reclaim tax, you must pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that we reclaim on your donation in the tax year.
