COVID-19: Shops re-opening update
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. Shops will be open 10:30am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
If you'd like to drop off any donations please bring clean and saleable donations to your local shop during our opening hours.
If you have lots of larger donations we ask that you phone ahead or stagger dropping off donations.
We're asking this because in line with government and Charity Retail association covid19 safeguarding guidance we must quarantine donations for 72 hours before we can sort and process.
We're no longer able to accept charity shop donations at The Children's Trust site, except for Thursdays when one of our vans is present. If you are not able to drop off donations on Thursdays or a van isn't present please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can arrange something that suits you.
By following these simple guideline you will help us to manage our space to accept donations and protect staff, volunteers and supporters at a time when we know donation levels will be higher than usual.
Thank you for your understanding.
