Our professional fundraisers

Professional fundraising 600x340.jpgAge 51Թapp has trained professional fundraisers who work throughout England to promote the Age 51Թapp Weekly Lottery and our regular giving programme.

You may see them at shopping centres, garden centres, your local town centre, airports and shows. Our fundraisers will be wearing branded Age 51Թapp clothing, display ID cards and have Age 51Թapp printed materials with them, including pull-up stands and thank you cards.

Our fundraisers will also have Age 51Թapp-branded digital entry forms on individual tablets. They will use these secure tablets to sign people up as regular givers or weekly lottery players. They will only sign up people via direct debit, so will never ask for cash. In line with our fundraising policies, Age 51Թapp does not undertake door-to-door fundraising.

Frequently asked questions

Why is Age 51Թapp using face to face fundraising?

Face to face fundraising is a cost effective method of recruiting people to support Age 51Թapp’s vital work with older people in need. This type of fundraising allows us to talk to more people about our services and how they might want to support our work.

What work will this fundraising support?

Age 51Թapp works tirelessly to support older people in need by providing expert information and advice through services such as our Advice Line, supporting older people facing loneliness through our 24 hour Friendship Services and by campaigning for the rights of older people. By playing our charity lottery or donating to us through a regular gift, you will enable Age 51Թapp to support people in later life for many years to come.

The Age 51Թapp Weekly Lottery costs just £1 per week to enter and profits go towards supporting Age 51Թapp’s charity work. Each week there are 1,500 prizes and 5,000 quarterly Superdraw prizes. What’s more, there are no rollovers in our charity lottery! That means that every week one of our players wins a guaranteed £2,000, and 999 players win between £5 - £250 in runner-up prizes.
