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.

This shop will be closed from this Thursday 5 November until we are advised by the government that we can open again. THANK YOU to everyone – volunteers and customers – who have supported us during the last few months when we were open again and we hope to see you again in December.

In the meantime please do continue to support us by visiting our online shop.

Due to the second national lockdown we’re afraid we can’t take any donations until further notice.

  • White goods such as fridges, freezers and washing machines
  • Damaged or broken goods
  • Electrical items
  • Furniture

Due to the second national lockdown we’re afraid we can’t take any donations until further notice.

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.

We rely entirely on volunteers for the whole process from the sorting to it arriving and being sold in the shop. We thank you for your patience in advance with this. If you would like to volunteer some time, please do get in touch – you can email volunteering@strodepark.org.uk
