YMCA shops

Feel Great…Donate!

There are more than 80 YMCA charity shops across England and Wales. Money raised in these stores through the sale of donated goods is used to help transform the lives of the young people we work with in almost 700 communities.

Our amazing shops sell a large range of items including second-hand retro, high street and designer clothing, handbags, scarves, shoes and other accessories, books, CDs, DVDs, vinyl, bric-a-brac, electrical goods, furniture, home-wares, games, sports equipment and jewellery. So, whatever you are looking for, you’re likely to find a bargain.

For the next month we are asking you to join in with the YMCA Great Donate by bringing us the stuff you don’t use. Look around your homes including outdoor spaces such as garages, sheds and outer buildings to help us make a bigger impact in the communities we serve. Show your support by posting a picture of yourself dropping off your donations at your nearest YMCA shop and post it online with #YMCAGreatDonate

You could make your donations worth 25% more, it’s as simple as being a UK tax payer. Ask us about Gift Aid when you donate.

Volunteering in our shops
