Charity Shops

Discover what treasures we have

We have two charity shops. One in Herne Bay and one in Tankerton.

Our shops are run by a dedicated team of enthusiastic volunteers and our students – who are from our Lifestyles Academy for Independence.

Inside both shops you will find great quality donated goods including new and preloved women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, books, memorabilia and household items.

The money raised from our shops contributes to our fundraising efforts.

We’re always grateful for items we receive and we’re happy to take the following items:

  • Men’s, women’s and children’s clothing
  • Accessories including shoes, belts, handbags and jewellery
  • Quality home ware – anything from cushions to crockery and lampshades to laundry baskets
  • Linens
  • Books, CDs and DVDs
  • Electricals
  • White goods such as fridges, freezers and washing machines
  • Damaged or broken goods

If you’ve got something to donate to us please drop it off at our donation station which is at Strode Park House, Lower Herne Road, Herne, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 7NE.

As you drive it’s on the first right.

Every item you donate is sorted from here and distributed accordingly and money raised from the sale of these items goes directly into our work.

We’re always looking for new people to help us in our shops.

Duties include meeting and greeting customers, using the till and cash handling, packing items for customers and sorting and displaying stock.

We rely on volunteers to keep our two charity shops open throughout the year and we are very grateful to all the people who give their time for this cause. Our shops support our work by generating income, being points in the community where local people can interact with us and as locations where people with disabilities can gain valuable expertise and build skills.
