Friday September 7th saw the 10th anniversary of the Prince’s Trust’s “Lunch with an Old Bag” at Prestonfield House and as the exclusive car sponsor, we arrived in style with five of our most prestigious models – two Cullinans, a Cherry Red Wraith Black Badge, White Dawn and a Rolls-Royce New Phantom.
Attended by some of Scotland’s most glamorous and stylish women who are affectionately known as “Old Bags”, this event was so named to address unnecessary labelling of young people who are often unfairly assigned to categories that they don’t fit into. The event raises funds for the many innovative programmes that The Prince’s Trust runs to help young people get into education, start a job or run a business.
The live and silent auctions offered “Money Can’t Buy” prizes and we donated several including a top-secret trip to visit the home of Rolls-Royce and a chauffeur-driven ladies lunch in the prestigious Renaissance Golf Club in East Lothian.
The day was a great success – from the entertainment to the lunch provided by James Thomson OBE and we’re delighted to announce that a record-breaking £1 million was raised. This will go towards improving and changing the lives of over 1,000 young people.
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. We were delighted to be a part of the 10th anniversary!
