Our professional fundraisers

Professional fundraising 600x340.jpgϲֱ쿪 has trained professional fundraisers who work throughout England to promote the ϲֱ쿪 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 ϲֱ쿪 clothing, display ID cards and have ϲֱ쿪 printed materials with them, including pull-up stands and thank you cards.

Our fundraisers will also have ϲֱ쿪-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, ϲֱ쿪 does not undertake door-to-door fundraising.

Frequently asked questions

Why is ϲֱ쿪 using face to face fundraising?

Face to face fundraising is a cost effective method of recruiting people to support ϲֱ쿪’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?

ϲֱ쿪 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.
