We rely on your support to help older people in Reading. There are many ways you can donate to us.

Ways to give

  • Donate online

    Giving online is quick and easy. You can make a one-off donation or a regular monthly donation to support our work through our Just Giving page.

    Donate online 

  • Donate by cheque

    If you would like to write us a cheque, please make it payable to Age UK Reading (This is important as if you just put Age UK it goes to the National organisation instead of Reading)  and pop it along to us in our offices at Thames House, 42 Portman Rd, Reading RG30 1EA.

    Please note this is just a back office and we are not able to meet clients at this location.

  • Leave a gift in your Will

    When the time is right, every gift in every Will, however large or small makes a difference. Help us to be here for future generations.

    Many people leave 1% to charity and 99% to those closest to them. This helps Age UK Reading continue to help local people with key services.

    Leave a legacy 

  • Support our shops

    Money raised from our shops supports our vital services in Reading via the national organisation, so why not bag a bargain or donate something you no longer need?
