Unfortunately bogus charity collections are becoming a real issue across the UK, so we’ve put together some tips to help you identify genuine Age Cymru collection bags and bag collectors. This is an example of a genuine Age Cymru collection bag for our charity.
Please note our bags are also a maroon colour and will have marked on them the day the bag is due to be collected.
1. If you receive any other bags through your letterbox that do not look like this but claim to be collecting for Age Cymru please do not use them. Only the bags shown above will come to our Charity
.2. Our collection bags have our Age Cymru company registration number on them (6837284), our Retail company number (8010768) ' our charity registration number (1128436) and our Cardiff office address.
3. All bag collectors working for Age Cymru carry photo ID and they will be happy to show this to you if asked.
4. If you have any doubts about the bags or bag collectors, please contact our Cardiff office on 029 2043 1555 or email. We appreciate your kindness and support and want to make sure your donations reach us as intended. Remember if you Gift Aid your donations, Age Cymru can potentially make an additional 25p per £1 for every item we sell!
