All the shops are bright and fresh and all the goods are beautifully presented. New goods come in every day and so you will always find something different each time you call. As well as this, our staff and volunteers are very friendly and more than happy to help in any way they can.

We rely on donations of good quality clothes and bric-a-brac in the shops to keep up with the high turnover so if you have unwanted items taking up space in your home, we would be delighted to accept them. All the net profit from the sale of goods in our shops goes directly to Age Concern Central Lancashire to help with projects for older people in the local area.

If you are bringing donations to the shops you may want to consider downloading a gift-aid declaration form from this web page and bringing it along with you.
