Charity Shop

The Bridgend Centre charity shop has regularly been called a ‘Treasure Trove’ and many a bargain can be found within its doors. It is also a vital source of regular income for our charity. Please see below a video which gives a bit of an idea what our shop is like:

Unfortunately at the moment our shop is closed due to the Coronavirus lockdown and therefore we cannot currently accept donations. But we will be opening as soon as restrictions allow and the information and booking system below for donations will re-open. Please keep an eye on our social media accounts for details.

We are currently receiving a high volume of donations after so many months away and all that time to tidy our houses! Therefore we are unable to accept large volumes of donations (no more than 4 large bin bags or boxes) or large items such as bikes, prams and furniture.

In order for us to receive your generous donations in a safe and manageable way, please book an appointment to drop donations off. Please use the form below to do so. If someone you know doesn’t have access to the internet, they will be able to give us a call on 01625 576311, on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday to book yourself a slot. When you arrive someone will greet you and inform you where to put your donations.

Good quality and clean items we can accept include clothes – Ladies’, men’s and children’s, handbags, books, CDs and DVDs, bric-a-brac, household items, intact toys, bedding, curtains and towels, fabric, material, wool and sewing materials.
