Can the people of Clitheroe rise to the Big Bag Challenge?

That is the question being asked by the charity Age UK which launched the challenge this week for people to make donations that will fill 100,000 bags in just two weeks. Last year the Age UK shop in Moor Lane received a record number of 1,000 bags and this year the staff are determined to beat that figure. Kelly Prince, manager at the Clitheroe shop, said: “We are asking everyone in Clitheroe to take on the Big Bag Challenge and it couldn’t be easier.

“Just drop a bag of unwanted items to the shop. Only with your help can we continue our work to raise vital funds to support lonely older people.’’
