If you're not in a position to make a donation, don't have the time to volunteer or don't fancy joining in with one of our fundraising activities, there are still other ways you can support us at no extra cost to you.
From raising a free donation while you shop, to raising funds by selling your unwanted items, find an idea to suit you below.
Raise free funds while you shop
Whenever you buy anything online – from your weekly shop to your annual holiday – you could be raising free donations for Age UK Solihull with easyfundraising, at no extra cost to you!
There are over 7,000 brands on board ready to make a donation – including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S – and it won’t cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.
So far, our supporters have raised over £2,000 by shopping through easyfundraising, and you can help us to raise even more!
There are no catches or hidden charges and we will be so grateful for the donations you raise.
Donate old or foreign currency
We have partnered with Cash4Coins, who turn unwanted and useless currency into donations.
If you've just got back from holiday, or if you've recently done a house clearance, you might be wondering what to do with the coins you have lying around.
Well, wonder no more! You can take them to one of our drop-off points in and around Solihull, to help raise funds to support our work.
Recycle and raise
You can donate unwanted or broken jewellery, old banknotes, and used stamps, to raise funds for Age UK Solihull at no cost to you.
Our partners at Recycling for Good Causes will reuse and recycle the jewellery and banknotes, giving the proceeds to Age UK Solihull to help us to support older and vulnerable Solihull residents, saving precious raw materials at the same time.
Raise funds with unwanted items
Trade in your unwanted books, games, CDs and DVDs for a donation to Age UK Solihull.
Simpy download the Ziffit app, scan the barcodes of your items, and click 'Complete trade' when you're done. When selecting your payment method, click 'Donation' and search for Age UK Solihull. You will then need to pack up your items and send them off using Ziffit's free courier or drop-off service, and the value of your items will be donated straight to our Virgin Money Giving page.
If you are not able to download the app, you can head to our unique Ziffit link, but you will need to manually enter the items' barcodes.
Sell your unwanted items on eBay and raise funds for Age UK Solihull.
You can choose to donate anything from 10% to 100% of your final sales price to a charity of your choice.
Visit www.ebay.co.uk or open the eBay app, and list your item(s). Under the 'Preferences' heading, select 'Donate a portion to charity'. Then click 'Find a charity', search for Age Concern Solihull, and select the proportion you would like to donate.
You don't have to do anything when your item sells; the donation will be automatically collected three weeks after the sale.
