As part of the drive to raise our profile and funds for the charity, We are branching out into the high street. We cannot divulge the exact location yet, as all the behind scenes paperwork is still being completed, but we can reveal our shop will focus on outdoor living and offer a range of new and donated goods related to enjoying our great outdoors.
But we need your help !
Please have a look around your cupboards and sheds and if you find items you no longer use please donate them to our new venture. We are not really looking for house decor, but if you’ve already sorted a few boxes in a new year fit of enthusiasm, then don’t worry we are happy to take everything and if there’s anything not part of the theme we will gladly pass it on to another local charity shop.
We are especially happy to receive:
Anything associated with;
Garden ornaments and furniture
Artwork depicting rural scenes
Rural arts and crafts
Or anything else associated with outdoor pursuits
If you have higher value items you are looking to sell please get in touch as we will also be acting as an agency taking a commission on higher ticket price items. You can drop off your donations to our office at the Shide Meadows Centre in Newport or contact us and arrange a collection.
We are incredibly lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers to help us with some of the essential landscape work, but if that’s not for you, this could be your chance to shine. We will need help in the shop and need to compile a roster of people who could offer some retail support. Get in touch if you might be interested and will will give you some more details
This is a big step for the charity and we are really looking forward to taking on the challenge to bring something new to the island retail sector as well as lifting our profile with the general public.
Please help us achieve our goals
