Are you tired of receiving unwanted, dust-collecting presents year after year? This festive season, why not make a meaningful change by receiving gifts that truly make a difference? Ask family and friends to make charitable donations instead of naff gifts and make it a year to remember.

Age UK Lambeth is committed to ensuring that no older person in our community is left behind during the holiday season. That’s why this year's campaign is dedicated to addressing the many challenges faced by older people in our community by asking people to replace those unwanted and forgettable presents with something that matters most: support for older people in our community who need it.

Donations will go towards essential services, including our energy and money support that helps people with their energy bills and benefits, our community cafes that offer free food and warm spaces, and our friendship services that help people avoid loneliness and make friends.

How to get involved:

Step 1 - Set up your Just Giving page

Step 2 - Share the link with family and friends

Step 3 - Sit back, relax and watch the donations roll in

No help goes unnoticed:

Not able to create a fundraiser? No worries! You could simply donate to our Christmas fundraising appeal here!

We are also looking for volunteers to participate in our MY hohoho campaign. We are asking local volunteers to cook and deliver an extra Christmas meal for an older person in Lambeth.

Christmas is a time for joy and togetherness, but for many older adults in Lambeth, it can be a time of great hardship. The cost of living crisis has left many of us struggling to make ends meet, and we believe that no one should have to face these challenges alone," - Paul Coles, CEO of Age UK Lambeth

For more information about Age UK Lambeth's Christmas fundraising campaign and how you can get involved, please visit our fundraising web page, contact our Community Fundraiser James on 07749 850058 or email fundraising@ageuklambeth.org.

Your chance to win!

Every donation received before midnight on Boxing Day will be added to our Christmas Hamper Giveaway (courtesy of Co-Op Lambeth!). Prize draw will take place on 27th December.

Let's make this a Christmas to remember forever by saying No to Socks!

Happy Christmas from the Age UK Lambeth Fundraising Team 🎄🤶
