Why Fundraise for Age UK Plymouth?

Age UK Plymouth exists to care for and work with older people and their carers in and around the City of Plymouth to improve their quality of life through promotions of choice, opportunity and independance.

As a Charity we rely heavily on donations to enable us to continue to provide our services.

All money raised locally is spent locally supporting older people in Plymouth.

Donations 

Can be taken or sent into any one of our centres or you can donate online through Localgiving.com. It is also very simple to set up a monthly standing order through your bank or building society.

Remember if you are a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid your donation, this means that for every £10 donated we can claim back another 25% from the Inland Revenue meaning your donation to us increases to £12.50.

How to donate

Why not suggest a casual dress down day or ask your company to nominate Age UK Plymouth as their Charity of the year.
