Lunch with an Old Bag
If you’ve enjoyed Lunch With An Old Bag festivities in previous years, you know how special it is … and if you are new to the occasion, you are in for a treat!
This annual key fundraising event on behalf of The Prince’s Trust Scotland is happening on Friday, September 13th at Prestonfield, and promises to be the biggest and best Lunch With An Old Bag yet.
Bringing together many of Scotland’s most glamorous and stylish ladies, known affectionately as ‘Old Bags’, this event was so named in order to address the unnecessary labelling of young people who can so easily and unfairly be assigned to categories they do not fit, and to raise funds for the many programmes The Prince’s Trust run to help young people move into education, employment, training and/or self-employment.
James Thomson OBE provides a sumptuous lunch, the ladies are entertained by the likes of Jason Donovan and Lulu, the Main and Silent Auctions offer an array of exciting prizes, many of which fall into the money can’t buy category, a Fast Bags Auction offers some of the fashion industry’s most coveted handbags -- and the crowning jewel – Edward Green’s stunning Raffle Ring.
Lunch with an Old Bag shines a bright light on issues faced by young people, challenges stereotypes and helps The Prince’s Trust in its mission to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people.
