Age UK Lancashire are excited to announce the launch of our new fundraising event: “35 Miles That Matter”. The event will take place throughout the month of March during which participants will aim to. Maybe even climb, row or unicycle! Whatever you want to do!
You will be raising funds to combat loneliness in Lancashire. Before the pandemic, there were estimated to be over 35,000 lonely older people (65+) living in Lancashire, and the impact of Covd19 will have driven these numbers much higher. Being lonely and isolated can drastically damage a person’s mental health and cause anxiety and depression. Age UK Lancashire wants to tackle this problem headfirst, but to do this, we need your help.
How can you get involved?
It’s really simple…visit our website and follow the simple steps to activate your very own fundraising page. Decide how you wish to complete the 35 miles and then tell everyone you know what you are doing and encourage them to sponsor you.
You could take on this challenge individually, as a couple or even get the whole family involved. It’s a great way to get active and support a local charity.
There is no minimum amount you have to raise, every penny counts and 100% of funds stay right here in Lancashire to directly support older people here.
