A huge part of our fundraising is through our charity shops which are located in Selsdon, Croydon, Westerham, Tatsfield and Peckham. Our services are available across these areas as well as a wide radius throughout Greater London and the South-East. The proceeds from your donations help us to improve facilities, fund clinical research and capital projects, enhance staff levels, as well as to deliver a range of support to young oncology patients and their families in our local communities. We are a small charity with a big commitment and every penny we raise is used where it is needed most.
Our charity shops allow communities to recycle and clean unwanted clutter and items whilst making change in the lives of others. Collections are FREE for all items resold or recycled ensuring waste is kept to a minimum.
We can all safely dispose of unwanted items for a small fee.
