Fundraising for Age UK Norwich is a great way to have fun and make new friends and help make a difference to the lives of older people in Norwich.

We have a number of activities that you can get involved with and support.

For more information on any of the events or to talk through your own ideas please contact our fundraising manager Emma Roper on 01603 496323 or   

Bobble Hat Day 8th December

Let’s get bobbling! As part of the innocent smoothie bobble hat campaign, we are launching our very own Bobble Hat Day on Friday 8th December. We’re asking schools, colleges, universities and businesses across Norwich to wear their quirkiest, favourite or most bonkers bobble hat to school or work and make a suggested donation of £1 to take part. The idea is very simple but the impact your fundraising can have on the lives of older people will be huge!

The Big Knit 2017

Thank you so much to all of our knitters who have submitted a hat for this year’s Big Knit. You will start to see the little hats sitting on innocent smoothie bottles from October, raising money to help keep older people warm and well. But don’t worry you can keep knitting and sending in your hats all year around. Click here to find out more and to download knitting patterns.
