Help us reach our Platinum Appeal target of £150,000 to support older people across the region.

Our Platinum Appeal, marking 70 years of service in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, runs from November 2019 to November 2021 and we need your help to raise £150,000.

Your fundraising efforts will help us continue to support our work with older people in three key areas:

  • Information and advice
  • Dementia support
  • Loneliness

All money raised will go to Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin which is independently funded and provides frontline services for older people in the county.

What Can You Do?

We would love for you to fundraise for older people in your community, so we're asking you to:

  • Spread the word

    Join the conversation on social media, use our hashtags below. Tell your colleagues, friends and family.

  • Organise a fundraising event

    Join together with your local group or at work: see our fundraising pack for ideas.

  • Take on a Platinum Challenge

    Run a marathon, do a skydive, give up chocolate! There are so many ways to take up a Platinum Challenge and we'd love to hear your fundraising ideas.

Follow the appeal progress on our Twitter and Facebook accounts. The appeal hashtags are #AGEUKSTW70 and #PlatinumAppeal

Keep us informed of your progress: if you organise an event, smash a target, or get your community involved, we’d love to know.
