Dear Editor,

With another national lockdown in place, Age UK has sadly had to close the doors of its 250 charity shops across the country for a second time.

But some good news is there’s still a way for locals in the North West to bag themselves a bargain and support older people most in need whilst their nearest Age UK shop is closed.

Age UK’s eBay shop sells a wide range of new and good quality items, including Christmas cards and decorations, homeware, toys and gifts, perfect for helping to make the festive season extra special this year.

Older people need us now more than ever and the money raised through eBay will help to fund the Charity’s vital work, including its Information and Advice and Friendship services, which have been a lifeline for older people during the lockdowns and throughout the coronavirus crisis.

We are so grateful for all the support our shops in the North West have received from our customers and local residents throughout this challenging time, and we look forward to welcoming you back to our stores as soon as we are able to.

You can visit Age UK’s official eBay page at

Our shops are also in need of volunteers for when we reopen again.

To find out how you can help, visit

Yours faithfully,

Nick Smith
Head of Retail at Age UK
