COVID-19 Update - our shops are re-opening, get your donations ready!
The Children’s Trust will reopen its 18 charity shops in phases over the next few weeks. The great news is that shops will be accepting donated items once again, and customers will be able to pick up a bargain to help to raise vital funds to support children with brain injury and neurodisability. Shops will be open 10:30am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
Following government advice, shops will be taking extra safety measures. Donations will be isolated for 72 hours before sale. All surfaces, doors and equipment will be regularly cleaned and guidance for social distancing will be provided. Staff and volunteers will have personal protective equipment and till screens are being installed. Hand sanitiser will also be provided in store.
