Our Leek Charity Shop opened in Derby Street in July 2015, with the shop being the first Wildlife Trust charity shop in the UK.
Money raised from the shop will go towards improvements to the Trust’s Roaches nature reserve, which is based in the Peak District, only four miles from Leek. In 2013, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust began its 125-year lease of the Roaches to promote enjoyment and understanding of the Roaches and ensure it is a fantastic place to visit, protect its unique and wonderful wildlife and offer opportunities for everyone to get involved.
I'd like to donate items to the shop? What should I bring and where should I bring them?
Our shop relies on the generous donations from members of the public. Items on sale in the shop include clothes, DVDs, CDs, games and toys to us. We especially need any unwanted clothes people may have. You can bring your bags to the shop direct, or drop them off at the Trust's headquarters, near Rugeley, or Westport Lake Visitor Centre, Stoke-on-Trent.
Where is the shop situated?
36 Derby Street, Leek, Staffordshire, ST13 5AB
When is the shop open?
Monday to Saturday, 9.30am-4.30pm and the first Sunday of each month for the Sunday Supplement Market.
