'Daredevil' Sponsored Event

Have you ever fancied doing something outrageous in your life.  You could do a Sky Dive, Bunjee Jump, Walk across the Himalayas, Tough Muddler Event, run the London Marathon and all to raise funds for Age UK Wakefield District.  We have a small amount of funding to be able to assist with set up cost for these type of activities with a guarantee of match funding on completion.  Let us know if you wish to have a go... 

One-off Events

You could hold a one-off event for family, friends or neighbours. It could be anything from a BBQ to a Sunday lunch – formal or informal.

Expanding Dinner Plate

You could offer lunch, dinner or even breakfast for family, friends, parishioners, neighbours and work colleagues. Why not ask each to donate £5 and then ask them to hold an event themselves.

For example, by inviting an initial 6 people donating £5 makes £30 for Age UK Wakefield District. If each of those invite six people to their event at £5 per person, that makes £180. It all adds up!

Wine at Nine

Invite a few friends round, bring a bottle and have a raffle, or hold it in a venue such as a pub or function room.
