Wagtails Charity Shops
Our two Wagtails Charity Shops exist to raise much needed funds for our shelter at AWS PE in Victoria Drive.
The money that our shops bring in is essential to help finance the care for the many dogs and cats living at our shelter.
Apart from helping us to raise funds for our shelter, our charity shops also serve the local community by allowing them to shop for affordable, good quality second hand items.
In order for us to raise funds through our shops, we rely on donations, volunteers and of course, shoppers. Although we sell donated items, what you see in the shop is in good condition and often even brand new! We also have treasures of yesteryear, and you may just be able to find that rare and collectible item you have been searching for. And then there's the funky, the modern and contemporary and the useful!
Come and have a look for yourself, you never know what you might find!
Our Walmer Wagtails Charity Shop has a wonderful and big collection of old and new books, and here's where we keep most of our good quality furniture, electrical items, plants, collectibles and memorabilia; whilst our Fig Tree Wagtails Charity Shop has a great selection of contemporary items for sale.
Support Our Wagtails Charity Shops:
Donating is a great way to help us raise funds for our animals, recycle your old items and help out the community. Keep us in mind when cleaning out cupboards, downsizing, revamping, moving house or simply just throwing out unwanted goods. Your gifts to us are what keeps our business flowing. If you are unable to deliver your donation to our shops, please contact us and we'll be happy to collect. (Please see our wishlist below for items we need.)
Browse And Buy
The support of people browsing and buying some of the wonderful and interesting goods we have on display is crucial to keeping our shops open. You will never know what treasures you may find! (Please see our wishlist for items we sell.)
If you're unsure about working with animals, but want to help make a difference in their lives, come and volunteer at one of our fundraising shops! It's a great place to meet different people, make new friends, learn new skills and have fun. We're always looking for someone who has an eye for fashion, art or literature and we rely on those who have a skill for organising and sorting. Whatever your hobby or interest, we have enough projects to suit most tastes and interests! Your interest, energy and enthusiasm can raise money for a good cause, making a real difference.
