Age Scotland celebrates Bobble Day

Bobble Day

February 10 is Bobble Day! Today Age Scotland is encouraging people all over the country to get involved and raise money to help improve the lives of older people in later life.

Across Scotland, people are digging out their favourite woollies, wearing them with pride and donating £2. Silly, daft, funny and colourful woollen wear is most definitely encouraged; staying warm and cosy will help older people stay warm and cosy too through the money raised.

If you’d like to support the day, you can donate £2 by texting AGES10 £2 to 70070 from your mobile phone, as well as donating online or over the phone on 0845 833 9334.

You can also visit our Age Scotland charity shops, pick up a worthy woolly item and strut your stuff. As well as this, our shops in Galashiels, Falkirk and Nicholson St, Edinburgh have colourful bobbles to complement your outfit – you can pick them up in-store for a small donation.


We’ll put some photos up next week of the crazy and colourful outfits supporters have donned in order to raise money for Age Scotland.
