Fundraising Events

There are regular events taking place around Ireland with an aim of raising vital funds to support Age Action's services.

In 2017, you can take part in a Women's Mini Marathon in June, play a part in Positive Ageing Week in October or join us on a special skydive with Skydive Ireland.

Follow the links below for more information on these fundraising events: 

Organise your own event

We would love if it you decided to take part in a fundraising event. But you can also hold a fundraiser of your own, such as a tea party, a coffee morning or a cake sale, and donate the proceeds to Age Action!

A good way to fundraise for Age Action is to sign up for everydayhero and nominate Age Action as your chosen charity.

If you have an idea for a fundraising event, would like to participate or help out with any of our fundraising events please call the fundraising office at 01-4756989.  

Church-gate collections

Church-gate collections are one of Age Action's most popular fundraisers and we organise collections at churches in various parts of the country on an ongoing basis.

We're always looking for volunteers to help out and if you have a couple of hours to spend on a Sunday morning you can help make a real difference.

If you'd like to know more, or you'd like to register your interest, you can contact us on fundraising@ageaction.ie or, for people in Munster, fundraisingcork@ageaction.ie.

Other ways you can help

Of course we understand that not everyone can run a marathon, but that isn’t the only way you can help.  You can drop into any of our charity shops to pick up some vintage bargains, If you would like to volunteer with our fundraising team please contact Rachel at volunteer@ageaction.ie

Age Action and the ICA welcomes Dáil vote on Pension Inequities

Orla O’Connor of the National Women’s Council, Marie O’Toole of the Irish Countywomen’s Association and Lorraine Fitzsimons of Age Action urging support for our petition for a fair State Pension.

Age Action and the ICA welcomes today’s decision of the Dáil to reverse the changes introduced in 2012 to how the State Contributory Pension is administered.  Today’s decision will begin the process of restoring pension entitlements to older people who had been denied them by a bureaucratic mechanism designed to save money at the expense of older people who had contributed to the country and the system.  These changes have meant at least 37,000 older people, 62% of whom are women, have been forced to live on reduced State Pensions, many experiencing great hardship.  This motion was an opportunity for the Government to undo the harm done in 2012.  . 

Age Action would like to thank Irish Country Women’s Association and the National Women’s Council of Ireland who have also campaigned for today’s decision.
