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

Become a Fundraiser

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.

Take part in a challenge

Join in with an organised challenge
event. Many companies
provide open challenges
such as treks, mountain climbs
and triathlons. Have a look
online to find where you can
get involved.
