A cheque presentation to Age UK Suffolk

We are always looking for people to fundraise for us at Age UK Suffolk and we have a range of exciting ideas and opportunities to suit everyone.  Whatever you decide, the money raised will go towards helping Age UK Suffolk to support local older people. As we are an independent charity, every penny raised in Suffolk stays in Suffolk.
You could host an event for us such as a coffee morning, hold stall at a fete, or take part in a sponsored activity.
If you are the adventurous type, why not undertake the trip of a lifetime and raise money for Age UK Suffolk at the same time!
Whether you want to fundraise as a group, a business or an individual, please get in touch to find out more.
Raising a donation of £40 could pay for entertainment or activities for 20 older people at a day service, bringing smiles and enjoyment.

Why make a donation to Age UK Suffolk?
Each year we support over 21,000 people living in Suffolk aged over 65 years. Currently only 45% of our income comes from statutory sources, we have to generate the remaining 55% ourselves. 
1 in 10 lonely older people in Suffolk don’t have a meaningful conversation with a friend or family member in a month – that’s 15,000 people in Suffolk, or an average of 10 people per square mile. 
Our services help to combat loneliness, enable people to remain living independently at home and offer them someone to talk to and somewhere to go so they never have to feel alone.
Just £10 could help an older person to remain living independently through a one hour meeting with a trained advisor.
£30 could pay for benefits advice that helps older people receive their financial entitlement, improving their quality of life and meet the cost of living.
£50 could fund a year’s telephone befriending providing friendship and support for an older person who feels lonely or isolated. 
 Other ways to donate
-Donations In Memory of a Loved One - we can provide envelopes for funeral or memorial service. 
-Regular Giving is important to help us fund our services for older people. For information about setting up a standing order, please download our
