Do Something are pleased to announce that National Op Shop Week 2015 will take place from Sunday Aug 23rd to Aug 30th 2015. Please put the date in your diaries!

 

Network TEN Newsreader Sandra Sully has come on board to join Op Shop Week Founder Jon Dee as one of the official ambassadors for 2015. Sandra fronted Op Shop Week when Do Something launched it back in 2012 - it's great to have her back on board supporting the charity op shops that are taking part in the event.

 

Other well known ambassadors will be announced by Do Something in due course.

 

The campaign slogan for 2015 is 'Op Till You Drop!'. We have a very exciting campaign planned to back that up, so please keep your eyes peeled for further announcements!
