Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's Charity Shops

Our Leek Charity Shop opened in Derby Street in July 2015, with the shop being the first Wildlife Trust charity shop in the UK. In April 2017, we opened our second charity shop, in Rugeley!

Money raised from the shops help support the Trust's work across the county, including our 27 nature reserves in Staffordshire.

I'd like to donate items to the shops? 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.
