Actons has pledged its support to Age UK Nottingham & Nottinghamshire as part of the charity’s 75th-anniversary celebrations.
Age UK Notts and The Sheriff of Nottingham are hosting a special lunch at The Council House in celebration of Age UK Nottingham and Nottinghamshire’s 75th anniversary, and to showcase the fantastic public transport network for our city.
The event on Friday 21 April, sponsored by Actons Solicitors and other Age UK Notts’ supporters, will welcome Nottingham City residents aged over 65 for a light lunch, entertainment and good company in the Council House’s fabulous Ball Room – all for free!
100 guests will be picked up by a special number 75 bus and taken to the Council House in the city centre where they will be greeted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, Councillor Jackie Morris.
Actons, who are a long-term corporate supporter of the charity, are also undertaking a gruelling fundraising challenge to mark 75 years of the charity. A keen group of walkers from the Nottingham law firm will be taking on the White Peak Challenge Walk, a distance of 26.4 miles over strenuous terrain, following some of the most rugged parts of the Peak District. You can visit https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/actons to pledge your support – we would be very grateful!
We’re delighted to continue to support Age UK Notts, especially in their special anniversary year. Through the work we already do with Age UK, we get to see first-hand the vital services they provide to the people of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. They are often vital lifelines to the people who make use of them. We would encourage businesses in other sectors to get involved with Age UK and support the amazing work they do in our local communities.
Maggie Ross, Fundraising Director at Age UK Notts said: “We are extremely grateful to Actons for their continued support of us as a charity. As we look back on the last 75 years of supporting older people in Nottinghamshire, we are filled with thankfulness to all the companies, groups and individuals for all the fundraising and volunteering that they have done. Without the ongoing partnership of people in the local community, such as the team at Actons, we would not be able to do the life-changing work that we do.”
