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:

Our absolute priority is the safety of the people who come into our Centre. We want to be a home-from-home where vulnerable people feel safe to visit and enjoy some social contact in a non-threatening environment. We believe we have a social responsibility to everyone in our community.

We are still operating social distancing at the Bridgend Centre. Our staff and volunteers will continue to wear a face mask and we ask that customers do so too where they can. The one-way system will still be in place, so please enter the building via the side door.

In order for us to receive your generous donations in a safe and manageable way, you can book an appointment to drop donations off. Please use the form below to do so. When you arrive someone will greet you and inform you where to put your donations. We will also accept donations without a slot, subject to us having enough capacity. To ensure you have a space, please make an appointment through our website.

Due to the large volumes of donations we are currently receiving, we are limiting them to 4 large bin bags or boxes per person and no large items such as bikes, prams and furniture.

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.

Please note that we only have one parking space outside the front door of the Bridgend. If that is occupied please park on the road and not on Broadheads car park.

When you are shopping in the charity shop there will be strict social distancing in place to protect you. You can download more information here:
