Fundraising

Glasgow’s Golden Generation needs your help now more than ever. Since the beginning of the year, GGG has supported over 700 older adults throughout our Covid-19 campaign and with your help we can reach even more. The charity provides vital services to the elderly such as befriending, essential food and items delivery service, welfare advice and weekly clubs.

There are many ways of how you can support our work, including through the giving of regular donations, fundraising events, runs and challenges.
