Help local older people by organising or taking part in a fundraising event for Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin.
The need for our help has increased rapidly recently and this puts huge strains on support for services that really make a difference to older people's lives: like day centres, our befriending visitors, the advocacy service and our benefits advice team.
As an independent local charity we rely heavily on the goodwill and support of local people and we are particularly grateful to those people and groups that hold fundraising events on our behalf.

Caroline Moss ran in the 2017 London Marathon to help local older people.
'Running the marathon for Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin filled me with a great sense of achievement. I would certainly recommend fundraising to help with motivation and dedication. My belief is that if we all did our bit to help our society, then the world would be a better place.'
