Our Charity Shops

Discover hidden gems

Why not come and check out the goods in our charity shops! There are many hidden gems to be discovered. Money raised from the shops help support the Trust's work across the county, including looking after our 30 nature reserves in Staffordshire. We have all sorts of goods on offer from books and toys to clothes and DVDs. Shopping in one of our shops is an easy way to support your local wildlife and wild places! 

COVID 19 UPDATE 

We are pleased to announce that our charity shops are now back open following the COVID 19 lockdown but they are operating at reduced opening hours so we advise reading the revised opening times below before your visit. 

Thank you to everyone for their support and patience during this time. We’ll only be allowing six people in the shops at any one time to ensure your safety, and will be advising customers to wash their hands with the hand wash provided on entry to the shops.

We know plenty of people have been sorting through their houses during lockdown, and have items to donate! Our shops rely on the generous donations from members from the public, including clothes, DVDS, books, CDs and games. Anyone who wishes to donate should call the shops on 01538 398989 (Leek) or 01785 847261 (Penkridge).

Charity shop donations

Our shops wouldn't be here without your support!

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.
