Age UK South Kent Coast wants to be able to provide care in the local community to a high quality and standard, but we couldn't do that without the support of the local community, local governing bodies and our fundraisers: their support is vital to the day to day operations of the Day Centre.

Funding

Age UK South Kent Coastreceives grants from the local governing bodies to help keep the service we provide, running. We also receive donations and legacies, for which we are extremely grateful. These two factors alone provide a substantial portion of our budget and allow us to continue offering our services throughout Deal, Folkestone and the surrounding area.

Fundraising

At Age UK South Kent Coast, we are proactive in trying to raise funds for our Day Centres, and every little helps! We have monthly raffles, with a range of prizes donated by clients and visitors to the Centres. 

We also hold occasional afternoon performances, tickets for which also include lunch, and have been lucky in hosting some wonderful singers and other entertainers at both the Marigold and Deal Centres.

We also organise other fundraising events e.g. community fetes, to help boost our funds, with the help of our volunteers and staff. We are really grateful for their efforts and continued support, and the contribution they make to Age UK South Kent Coast.

We would like to thank the trusts and foundations that have donated to us, and continue to support and actively promote the services that we offer.

A partnership with us could be beneficial for your business by helping you meet your corporate social responsibility objectives.
