Family enjoying a Big Dinner Party afternoon tea

Get together with friends and family at a Big Dinner Party and show your support for Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin.

Whether it's a lavish dinner party, afternoon tea in the garden, a simple BBQ or even a takeaway, we invite you to get together with friends, family or your neighbours and sign up to The Big Dinner Party and raise funds to support older people in your community.

Loneliness is more than just a feeling, it can have negative effects on physical and mental health. Many older people in the county face isolation daily, leading to depression, anxiety, and a decline in overall wellbeing.

We provide many services, support and companionship to help alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation, but we can't do it alone. Your participation in The Big Dinner Party can make a real difference.

Download our fundraising pack and enjoy our themed invitations, place name cards, party props and even a quiz to help you host your event.

We suggest you ask your guests to contribute a minimum of £10 using our JustGiving page, using the following link (the QR code in the pack will also take you to the page):

We hope you have a great event and thank you again for your support. We would love you to share your events with us either on social media or by emailing us. Make sure you tag us on social media: #BigDinnerParty and @AgeUKSTW on Facebook, @AgeUK_STW on X or @ageukshropshireandtelford on Instagram.
