  • This lot is being sold on behalf of Age Scotland.

    Age Scotland exists to improve later life for older people.

    Older people bring an unquantifiable wealth of wisdom and experience to society. They bring a strength drawn from a life lived, mistakes made and lessons learnt. Age Scotland believes in the power of older people to inspire, to mobilise and to be proud of who they are.

    The charity funds, develops, mentors and champions local groups; helping create places where older people can come together as a community bringing joy and a renewed sense of purpose into their own lives and support to those who need it most.

    The Helpline provides vital advice and information to thousands of older people each year so they can make informed decisions in their lives. The charity's policy and government team provide opportunities for older people to challenge disadvantage and unfairness, and also ensure that older people's ideas for a better Scotland reach the ears of those who need to hear them.
