The Virtual Big Braw Bucket Shake

What is a virtual bucket shake? 

Bucket collections have always been a great way for us to raise vital funds and we've lost out on donations as our Age Scotland collection buckets have sat in storage for the past year.

We are determined to still be there for the vulnerable older people which is why we need YOU to become a Big Braw Bucket Shaker!

Instead of shaking a collection bucket at your local train station or supermarket, you can fundraise for us without leaving the sofa! All you need to do is raise as much as you can online, asking your networks to donate to your virtual bucket collection.

The difference you'll make

The money you raise will fund vital services like our friendship line. Every week we receive hundreds of calls from older people looking for support. Many are lonely and isolated and just want to hear a friendly voice. We listen, provide comfort and friendship and let them know someone cares. 

No one should feel like they have no one to turn to. If you agree, sign up today to become a Big Braw Bucket Shaker and help us be there for vulnerable older people when they need us most.

It's so easy to take part and we'll provide you with a range of materials to share online so you can make the most of your virtual bucket shake.
