MP Hugo Swire officially opening our Sidmouth shop!

Like all charity shops we’re always in need of goods to sell. We’re appealing for good quality clothing, toys, ornaments, paintings, crockery and more.

If your garage or wardrobe is full to bursting point with unwanted items, please get in touch!

We accept electrical items too.

Contact us to donate goods

If you have any questions or want to donate goods to our charity shops, feel free to call the shops directly.

So that we can claim gift aid on your items in the charity shop once they are sold, please fill in our Gift Aid form and bring along with you when you drop off your items.

Our award winning charity shops

Two of our charity shops, in Honiton and Exeter, won a Highly Commended award in the 2010 Awards for Innovation in Charity Retailing. Yes, they earn vital money for our school and college but they’re also highly successful social enterprises. Our shops create excellent opportunities for vocational and social interaction to disabled young people in Devon.

Our young people use regular work experience in our shops to learn valuable work-based skills as well as boosting their confidence and self-esteem. Our premises have even been renovated to create a user-friendly environment for visually impaired shoppers and staff.

Selling your unwanted goods on Ebay

In an exciting extension to our shops, we’ve set up an Ebay Centre where we teach the young people to trade online.

This provides a valuable way of getting to grips with e-commerce and, as you can imagine, is extremely popular.
