The most important supporters and partners of our organisation
Michelle Martin, of Age UK Essex says, “We see our partnership with the EWFL as a great opportunity for us being connected with clubs in a ‘grass roots’ football league that actively promotes the well-being of people in later life. It will provide us with a further fundraising opportunity via the EWFL to promote our range of products and services, which will be displayed at each of their events. In return we will be promoting walking football via our centres, shops, articles in the Age UK magazine and via our social media outlets.” Age UK Essex is the EWFL's official charitable partner for 2018.
Background to Age UK Essex
Their Aim - At Age UK Essex they aim to promote the wellbeing of all older people in Essex and be there to support people to live fulfilling and enjoyable lives. They believe in a society in which people in later life from all communities have equal access to services, where they are free from discrimination and their human rights are promoted and protected.They believe everyone should be who they want to be. No matter what their age.
What They Do - Later life should a time of activity and engagement when we are able to carry on socialising, working and contributing to our community. But this is sadly not true for thousands of older people in Essex. There are many people in later life who are lonely and cut off from society. They want to change this.
How They're Funded - With the demand for their help growing, they are striving to raise income to support their services. They use the profits from their fee charging services to subsidise those that receive very limited or no external funding and their trading company also play an incredibly important part in supporting their work by Gift Aiding any profit they make back to the charity.

The Prostate Cancer Charity was founded in 1996 by Professor Jonathan Waxman to address the 'Outrageous and arbitrary surgical treatment of men'. They were the first national organisation for prostate cancer in the UK.
Their aim was to improve the care and welfare of those affected by prostate cancer, increase investment in research, and raise public and political awareness of a long-neglected disease.
They started small: five members of staff and with our helpline housed in a small room in Hammersmith hospital. It ran one day a week. They merged with Prostate Action in 2012 and completely rebranded to form Prostate Cancer UK.
In the last 20 years, they’ve invested over £37 million into ground breaking research, and continue to provide award-winning support for men. They have grown in size, strength and influence but our ambition is the same: to put men at the heart of everything they do.

EC Awards are the suppliers of all EWFL trophies and medals.
EC Awards started life in 1976 as part of a trophy and awards retail business based in Surrey. Their early forays into the corporate awards market saw them produce hundreds of engraved glasses for Hovis, and then thousands of dealer plaques for AutoCAD. They’ve witnessed many changes in how awards can be engraved, sandblasted and printed, and they’re continually looking to offer their clients the latest branding innovations. In 2008 they made the step from the High Street to Online, determined to make sure that their exceptional service levels were carried forward through that change. That move enabled them to work with new clients across the UK and Europe as well. Their website offers a simple process for placing your order. You can upload your logo, add your engraving, give them any specific delivery instructions and can always be safe in the knowledge that they will deliver a quality award.
