On the seventh day of Christmas our Branch came to see…..

Seven shops-a-trading

2020 was exceptionally difficult for our Branch, particularly our shops. With them being closed throughout the lockdowns we had a huge loss in finances. However, 2021 has been better and thanks to your support, our shops have been making up for 2020 and are continuing to raise the much needed funds for us to help animals in need.

I manage the Dereham Charity shop for the Branch. The shop has been going from strength to strength and has had fantastic support from our wonderful Dereham customers and community.
The outpouring of support for our charity, by our customers, donors and volunteers, especially the Dereham community, has been phenomenal. I would like to thank every single one of them for their continued support. I know each of the shops will reiterate this. It made our hearts sing.”

So why shop in a charity shop? We have so many lovely items for you to choose from such as books, jewellery, clothes, shoes, crockery and so much more! We’re even selling Christmas cards and we have many gift ideas for your loved ones. However if you are still unsure then below are even more reasons you should shop in our charity shops!

It's original

You may be able to find clothing and other items that will not be available in other bigger stores, allowing your originality to show and not be copied. There are not many places that you can find vintage items and random books for example! Also, when somebody asks where you got your new item from, you can happily say that this is a one off item you got from the RSPCA Mid Norfolk & North Suffolk charity shop and it was an absolute bargain!

To raise awareness

First of all, you can raise awareness about the effect mass consumption in shopping has on the environment and instead of buying completely new goods, you can buy  perfectly good-as-new items for half the price. Not only that, your custom means we can help more animals in need in your local area and by shopping in our shops, you will become an advocate for our Branch, showing your support for good animal welfare.

Value for money

One of the main reasons that our shops are so popular is that they are great value for money. In one shop, you are able to buy clothing of all types, jewellery, games, books, pet food all at a really cheap price and the list goes on! Not only are you getting a great deal, we are too as all of the money you spend on your purchase goes towards helping animals in your local area.

It's sustainable

Someone’s unwanted item may be the exact thing you are looking for so instead of it ending up in landfill, you can enjoy it and make it your own. Not only will you be helping the environment, you will also be helping animals too. Click here to see our blog on recycling. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
