We are delighted that our pop up Chartwell Charity Shop in Brixton, Acre Lane will be open for another year. The Charity Shop has grown since it first opened in December 2017. The shop, is run and managed by The CCT with the help of from wonderful team of volunteers. The shop hosts an array of good quality second-hand items and is very popular among the local community.
In collaboration with the charity shop, the House of Hygge coffee lounge and event space next door is now firmly established. HOH prides itself on offering fantastic coffee as well as a selection of beverages, snacks, yoga and events. This experiential pop-up store aims to create a relaxing, collaborative and inspiring environment, a one-stop-shop for a mind and body MOT. HOH also hosts The CCT’s King’s Childhood Cancer Support Meet-ups, workshops and even weddings!
The charity shop in Croydon University Hospital, supporting the Lily Pad Appeal is thriving and has been a fantastic success thanks to CCT’s Rachel Rogan and her amazing volunteer team.
