Carrier bag charges benefit children with cancer

Home Hardware stores across Ayrshire have chosen to support CLIC Sargent with its 5p carrier bag charge.

New Scottish legislation came out on 20 October which requires all retailers (food and non-food) to charge a minimum of 5p for each single-use carrier bag.

The Scottish government is encouraging retailers to donate the proceeds from this charge to good causes in Scotland. 

Home Hardware stores across Ayrshire have chosen to donate these funds to CLIC Sargent.

Follow in Home Hardware's footsteps and suggest to your favourite retailer that it donates its 5p from each single use carrier bag to CLIC Sargent to help support children and young people with cancer, and their families.
