Big Bag Challenge

The Big Bag Challenge launches Monday 8 October 2018

We're calling on the nation to donate their unwanted items to the Big Bag Challenge and help older people to love later life.

Launching on Monday 8 October, volunteers working across all of our shops are ready and waiting to accept you generous bags of donations. Help us to reach our goal of collecting an additional 100,000 bags of goods across the country in just four weeks.

You can support our campaign by donating bags to your nearest Age UK shop. We accept all types of quality goods, including clothing, shoes, books, accessories and homeware (see the full list)

Find your nearest Age UK Shop


  • Please select a search type
  • Please enter a valid postcode

Each bag you donate is worth an average of £20 to Age UK*

This could pay for a month of 'Good Day' calls to a lonely older person.
