Contact us on for more information.

How can we get involved?

There are a number of ways your organisation can partner with us.

Choose Age UK Sunderland as your Charity of the Year

Please consider choosing Age UK Sunderland as your business Charity of the Year. In return we would offer joint branding on our fundraising materials and our events, as well as positive PR and local media coverage.

Sponsor one of our events

Your staff could get involved in our events thoughout the year, such as one of many projects or even our volunteer's party. By sponsoring an event you help us with the costs, for example, food and decorations, and in return get some great PR and local media coverage.

Display a collection tin

Could you display a collection tin in your office or shop? This would help us to collect much needed donations to ontinue our vital work in Sunderland.

Donate a raffle prize or service

Could you donate a prize for one of our many fundraising raffles and competitions - perhaps a bottle of wine, box of chocolates or biscuits, bath goodies, gift vouchers, or free services?

Donate equipment

If you would like to donate a piece of equipment, we would be very grateful. We usually need raiser chairs for people in our day centre, kitchen equipment for our lunch clubs, and computer equipment for our staff.

Send employees to volunteer

Could you send a team to help out at an event or activity? It's a great way for staff to bond by working together to help vulnerable older people. Previous staff teams have served Christmas lunches and taken older people on days out.

Run a fundraising event

Your employees could run their own fundraiser to help raise vital funds for our work. They could do a cake sale, dress down day, a sponsored walk or run, or a raffle. There's so many things they could do - contact us for more ideas!

Corporate sponsor case study - Innocent Smoothies Big Knit 2019

  • Age UK and innocent first launched The Big Knit in 2003 and it has continued every year since providing promotion and funding. The hats are knitted exclusively by volunteers who give up their time and wool to make them.

Thank you to everyone who knitted a hat for this year's Big Knit. From October, you'll start to see your little hats sitting on innocent smoothie bottles in stores across the UK. For every behatted smoothie that is sold, Age UK will receive 25p to help keep older people warm and well.

A big thank you to Innocent smoothies for all their help and support.
