Have you had a clear-out at home during lockdown? Age UK North, South & West Dorset (NSWD) is open at Rowan Cottage in Dorchester to take your items off your hands.
Age UK NSWD is asking for donations of clean undamaged clothing, Bric a Brac, books and DVDs to restock its charity shops in Dorset.
The Charity aims to re-open its newly relocated retail premises in St. Mary Street, Weymouth by the middle of June, followed by its existing shops in Bridport and Dorchester.
Operations Manager, Sarah Frigot said: “We are excited to be re-opening our shops, especially our new store opposite Marks & Spencer in Weymouth.
“We need good quality donations to raise money for our vital work supporting older people. I am sure lots of people have had a good clear-out during the lockdown, and we would be thrilled to turn unwanted items into new funds.
“We aim to open the shops as soon as we possibly can, closely following Government guidelines to ensure a safe shopping experience for our customers, staff and volunteers.”
Age UK NSWD head office at Rowan Cottage in Dorchester, will be open to safely receive your items on Tuesday 9 and Friday 12 June from 10am to 2pm on both days.
Please note that we are unable to accept electrical items, underwear and nightwear. We are also unable to accept donations at our stores until they re-open.
