Covid Update:

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has donated, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of donations since reopening our shop in July.

Due to quarantining regulations, we are processing all our donations in a different way and this is therefore taking a little bit more time. We are still taking good quality donations, please call the shop on 01329 826842 before bringing your donations to ensure we have enough room.

Thank you again for your ongoing understanding, patience and support.
