Charity shops

We have five charity shops operated by a fantastic team of volunteers but we are always looking for additional help.

Our shops are a hive of activity, with donations to sort, and our excellent regular customers to serve, but we love to see new faces so always feel free to pop in and meet our teams and have a browse. We are always receiving new stock so our shelves are regularly refreshed with different items.

Gift Aid at our Charity Shops

Gift Aid is a fantastic opportunity for us to raise extra funds via cash donations or gifts of unwanted items such as bric a brac, clothing, shoes, bags, books and toys.

The process is very simple and takes 30 seconds; if you are a tax payer there is the opportunity for the charity to claim back 25p for each £1.00 given in cash donations, or once we sell your donated goods we are able to claim 25p for £1.00 of these sales. This costs you nothing extra but we claim this back from HMRCC.

Our volunteers will invite you to fill out a gift aid declaration on your visit to our shop.

We are always looking to grow our group of retail volunteers; whether you can help for a full day, for a couple of hours a week or even on an adhoc basis then we would love to hear from you.

There are a variety of roles which you could undertake and we have something for everybody. If you could spare a few hours, have a good sense of humour and enjoy meeting new people, we would love to have your help with volunteering in our shops.
