Start by working out who you’d like to invite and what kind of dinner party you’d like to organise – for example, a buffet, a three-course meal or a takeaway. Send invitations to your guests and share a link to your fundraising page for anyone who can’t make it.
To take your party to the next level, set a theme for the night. Celebrate food history and dine through the decades, for example, taking a trip down memory lane to celebrate decade-specific recipes – anything from trifle to devilled eggs! Ask your guests to dress up for the night and create a playlist to celebrate the theme.
Why support Independent Age?
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
