For 60 years, we have been working in the local community, providing help, support, and services for those aged 50+. We are very proud to be celebrating this milestone and we have set ourselves a target of raising £60,000. 

The target of £60,000 will help us as a charity continue to fund and provide our vital services and activities, especially during these challenging times. We would love for communities to get involved so we have prepared some ready-made resources to support and help make your fundraising efforts a success!

As we look to celebrate 60 years of Age UK Surrey, here is a Timeline which gives a quick look at how support for older people came about. Also, our latest newsletter which focuses on our 60 years of supporting people across Surrey and our fundraising initiatives.
