At the Bridgend Centre we are very proud of our Charity Shop and what it represents for our community. Many people call it an Aladdin’s cave! The shop is an important income generator for us while providing low-cost bargains for the community and also enabling people to recycle items such as clothes, toys etc.
We try to recycle as much as possible, selling unsold or unsuitable clothes, shoes and bedding to the rag man for use in Third World Countries or for shredding to make insulation. Any unsold toys and bric-a-brac are passed on to a scout group which operates in Stockport which they use for Jumble Sales to raise money for them too.
We are always looking for volunteers to help in the charity shop, so if you are interested in getting involved, please contact us.
We also sell more unusual or valuable items on eBay. Our eBay ID is bridgend_centre and you can add us as one of your favourite sellers if you want to follow what we have for sale.
We can now claim gift aid on your donations to our shop, which means we can claim an extra 25% from HMRC on the items we sell. Please ask at reception for details on how to do this.
What do we sell?
We sell books, good quality ladies, gents and children’s clothing, bedding, curtains, children’s toys, small furniture items, jewellery, hand bags, shoes, electricals, DVDs, books and many other similar items. If you would like to donate any of these items or indeed items that are not on this list but you think we would be able to sell them then please bring them to the Bridgend Centre. Unfortunately we cannot accept baby seats, cycle helmets, magazines or large items of furniture. Unfortunately we also cannot accept house clearances due to lack of space.
