Help people live later life well

As a charity, fundraising is vital to Methodist Homes (MHA).

 

We urgently need your help. All of our lives have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic but those in later life, in our care, are particularly vulnerable during this crisis. Fundraising for MHA is more important now than ever.

 

We'll make all of the money you raise go further to help eliminate isolation and loneliness across Britain, enabling people to live later life well.

 

 Whether you're an experienced fundraiser, want to take part in a charity event for the first time or you're thinking of organising a group event, MHA will be with you every step of the way to help you make whatever you decide to do a success.
