Our shop is unique.   We are not a nationwide, branded charity shop and we do not buy in goods to sell.   All our shop staff are volunteers.

The shop is totally dependent on donations of items for sale and without the proceeds from the shop, the COATS Centre would not be able to continue.


We sell a wide range of quality, pre-checked and fully working products, including:

Men’s and women’s clothing and shoes
• Jewellery, handbags and accessories
• Craft items
• Children’s clothing, toys and games
• CDs, DVDs and console games
• Small electrical items
• Books
• Bric-a-brac


We welcome your donations but please only deliver during shop opening hours.

Unfortunately, for various reasons (e.g. lack of space or legal requirements) we are unable to accept certain items including:

  • Large furniture items
  • Large electrical goods
  • Children’s car seats

If you are unsure as to what is acceptable please call us on 01344 751065.


We also take worn out clothing, shoes, handbags and household linen which we sell to recycling companies.   It would help us if you could mark bags containing these items as “recycling”.


From time to time we need more helpers to join our friendly group to help with sorting and checking donations, restocking the shop, assisting customers, cashiering, tidying and even making the tea.   Working hours are flexible depending on your commitments, especially working around school hours.

Visit the shop and have a chat with one of our team to find out more.
