Charity Shop

 

We are delighted to announce that the shop will be open from Monday 7th September 10am.

Collections and deliveries will be Tuesdays and Thursdays for the first few weeks and then hopefully this will be extended. Please note due to the current restrictions we are only able to collect or deliver items from outside properties.

Looking forward to seeing all our customers.

 

The WCBS shop is open Monday to Saturday – 10am to 4pm. We are located at:

173 Stamford Street Central, Ashton-under-Lyne, OL6 7PS.

The shop sells the goods collected on our recycling trips. We also receive donations of goods from members and the public. We sell clothes, bric-a-brac, books, furniture and collectables, as well as lots of other things.

We try to recycle as much as possible and if the items we receive aren’t sellable in the shop we sell them to rag and scrap merchants. The Shop is doing well and despite the economy we’re still receiving lots of donations. Thank you if you’ve helped out on one of our recycling trips or donated items to the shop directly – it all helps!

If you would like to make a donation to the shop, or help out as a volunteer, then please email our shop manager at shop@wcbs.org.uk

eBay Store

We have an online shop running in parallel with our real life charity shop. Many of the items are ones collected on our recycling run which are deemed unsuitable to be sold in the shop. Other items are put on sale by our members, or for that matter anyone who wishes to, and are donating the proceeds to the society. Ebay donates it’s fees too.
