As we all become more aware of the toll that fast fashion is taking on the world in general – the fashion industry is second only to the oil industry in terms of pollution –shopping in charity shops makes more sense than ever.
Not only is it a great way to keep costs down, it’s a great way to reduce your impact on the planet and, by shopping in your local Willow Wood shop, you are also helping the Hospice care for the people of Tameside and Glossop.
Of course, it’s not just fashion. The Willow Wood shops are an ideal source of books, toys, household essentials, baby goods, furniture and more.
And if you know someone who loves to browse around our shops then we have the ideal gift for you: the newly launched Charity Shop Gift Card.
It can be loaded with amounts starting at £20, and that £20 could outfit someone from head to toe. We’re thrilled to be the first North West charity to join this scheme. Not only does it encourage recycling of goods, but the card itself is fully compostable, a real plus if you’re concerned about the environment.
The Gift Cards are available at all our shops, or you can buy online at www.thecharityshopgiftcard.co.uk where you can also see full information on the card.
