Cape opened its charity shop in April 2013 and we haven’t looked back!
We have received tremendous support and encouragement from the local community.
We sell quality clothing, accessories, jewellery, shoes, books, CDs, DVDs, bric-a-brac and kitchenware all of which has been donated to help us raise funds to continue the vital work of the charity and raise awareness of the needs of people living with severe and enduring mental health difficulties.
CAPE Charity Shop is a hive of activity. Behind this enterprise is a large and active community endeavour.
The CAPE Charity Shop was established to raise much needed funds for the charity. It also provides volunteering opportunities for CAPE members and local residents, and promotes the work of this valuable organization.
The shop is a treat to visit. Welcoming and friendly, this is a boutique charity shop offering high quality goods which are displayed with taste and style. Everyone in the shop takes great pride in making the shop an attractive, eye-catching and welcoming space.
Donations are always welcome and, if anyone is interested in volunteering, they are welcome to pop in and have a chat. Due to space restrictions and particular safety regulations, the shop is unfortunately unable to sell, and so cannot accept donations of, toys, games, sports equipment, baby equipment, furniture, bedding, towels or electrical goods.
When donations are Gift Aided, the Charity receives an extra 25p per pound the item is sold for, so please sign up when donating.
CAPE Charity Shop is the public face of a charity dealing with issues that affect many people at some time in their lives. It is a local based charity fulfilling a real need—a much needed haven for many members of our community.
The shop is run by Cape staff, community volunteers and Cape service users. It is a warm and welcoming space where people can come in and browse as well as finding out about Cape. We are very grateful to receive donations; if you are interested in volunteering with us please pop in for a chat. Please come and visit us soon! Opening hours are Tues to Fri 10am – 5pm, Sat 9.30am – 4.30pm. We are closed Sun and Mon at present.
