Lunch with an Old Bag

Check out the T100 page to find out more about our exciting new fundraising initiative!

If you've enjoyed Lunch with an Old Bag festivities in previous years, you know how special it is...and if you're new to the occasion, you're in for a treat!

This annual key fundraising event on behalf of The Prince's Trust Scotland is happening in September 2018 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 runs to help young people get into education, get a job or start a business.

James Thomson OBE provides a sumptuous lunch and the ladies are entertained by the likes of Jason Donovan, Lulu, The Three Degrees, The Overtones, Bryan Ferry and Sister Sledge.  The Live 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.
