We receive no funding for most of our services and rely on our dedicated fundraisers to help make Southend a better place to age.

Get Fundraising

Our team could not provide the help and support they do without the help our our star fundraisers. We receive no funding for the majority of our projects including our community transport and befriending services so every penny you help us to raise can make a huge difference to the lives of older people in our community.

Every penny raised goes straight to our small, independent charity to help us pay for the services we offer.

Community Fundraising Pack 2019 Update-compressed


Take part in a sponsored something

Give something up. Ask people to sponsor you to give up chocolate, smoking or maybe even Facebook!
Do an activity. Take part in a (or host your own) sponsored run, walk, swim or bike. You could get sponsored to do team sports or even exercise at the gym.
Could you do 2 hours on an exercise bike or 12 hours of football matches at your local club?
Do something crazy. The more unusual or daring the idea, the more sponsors and publicity you are likely to receive. Take a baked bean bath, dye your hair a daring colour, the possibilities are endless!

Host a bake sale

Could you bake to beat loneliness? Host a coffee morning or bake sale or even a bake off to raise a few pounds and raise awareness of loneliness in our community. You can download our bake to beat loneliness pack below.

Host an event or fundraiser

Run a bake sale, clothes swap or  jumble sale! Charge an entry fee or ask for donations for your cakes or clothes for an easy way to raise some money for ACSOS.

Host a games night! Quizzes, race nights, board game tournaments, even 24 hour game-a-thons are a great way to get people having fun for ACSOS

Run a raffle! Raffles are an easy way of raising money at an event and can often raise more than the event itself! Talk to us if you have any questions about running a raffle in accordance with gambling regulations and how to approach local businesses for prizes.
