Bag packs and shop collections 

Can you spare a few hours? Why not help us raise awareness and donations at your local supermarket by holding a charity collection or bag pack? These are easy to organise, simply ask to speak to the charity champion in your local store and pick a date. These are great ways to get involved with the local community while raising funds for charity. These events are also fantastic opportunities for schools, students, scouts and brownies to get involved.
