Age UK Solihull has been supporting older Solihull residents for over 40 years, and we could not have done so without the community supporting our fundraising activity. Whether coming along to one of our events or taking part in a sponsored challenge, Age UK Solihull has a range of exciting opportunities to suit everyone. Whatever you decide, the money raised will go towards helping Age UK Solihull to support local older and vulnerable people. All the money raised in Solihull, stays in Solihull.
