The Big Bag Challenge

The Big Bag Challenge is back! Help us reach 100,000 bags of donations

The challenge

From 5 October 2015, volunteers in Age UK shops will be on hand to receive bags of donations, with the goal of reaching 100,000 bags. We need you to help us reach our target by having a clear out and donating unwanted items to your local Age UK shop.

How your donations help

Funds raised will allow Age UK to continue it’s vital work of supporting those who are facing later life alone, enabling us to provide companionship, support and advice, as well as our free national advice line (open 365 days a year) and vital campaigning work. 

Take part

Taking part couldn’t be easier! All types of quality goods are accepted, including clothing, shoes, books, accessories and homewares and every bag donated will help raise much-needed funds for older people. Just bring your unwanted items along to your local Age UK shop.
