How To Help

 

Volunteers Required

Do you enjoy meeting people and have some free time to spare ?

We are looking for volunteers to help either in our shop or out at our events or services that we run sometimes weekly or monthly.
Can you spare a few hours to help us help others! You don’t have to be experienced, just have a friendly and caring personality, enjoy meeting and socialising with people.
If this sounds like you please give us a call or pop along to the office and have a chat.

Fundraising

If you’d like to help raise money for the charity, there are several ways you can help out!

If you regularly shop online, you can earn donations for us at no extra cost to yourself.

Knitters can help us out by knitting or crocheting smoothie hats for the Big Knit, and earn 25p for us for each hat donated!

We enter a team in the Santa Fun Run each year, and you can support us by either sponsoring our runners or joining our team yourself!

We’re always grateful for whatever help we get, and would like to give a big thank you to everyone who has helped us!

 

Donations Wanted

We’re always in need of more donations for our shop, whether clothes, toys, bric a brac, electronics, jewellery or anything else!

The only thing we unfortunately can’t accept is large furniture due the size limitations of our shop floor.

We have active eBay and Amazon accounts so that we can sell our higher value collectible items online.

If you have anything that you think might have a value and would like to  donate it to us please call or bring it straight down to the shop.
