Our shops

When’s a charity shop not just a charity shop?

From our traditional shops to our quirky charity boutiques, when you visit a Sailors’ Society shop you’re in for a great shopping experience, excellent customer service and the satisfaction that your money is helping seafarers around the world.

So pop in, say hi and pick up a bargain. And we’re always looking for new stock to keep our shops fresh – donate your unwanted goods and help a seafarer today.

Help keep our shops full…

Streamlining your wardrobe, making space in your kitchen cupboards or just have pairs of shoes you’ve never worn? We need your help to keep our shops brimming with brilliant things!

Please leave any donations with a member of staff – not on the pavement or in the doorway (unfortunately we can’t take large furniture items).

Gift aid your donations and see the change

Did you know that when you add Gift Aid to your donations they're worth 25 per cent more to us? So for every £10 worth of your pre-loved clothes, we could give a seafarer a free ear and eye test, protecting his health – and his career at sea.

We collect:

  • clothes – men’s, women’s and children’s
  • accessories, like handbags, shoes and belts
  • toys and games
  • books
  • homewares, from crockery to pictures
  • kitchenware, crockery, housewares
  • electrical items
  • DVDs, CDs and vinyl records
  • musical instruments

Your donations will change lives around the world

Like that of Cassandra, 5, and her family, whose house burnt down when her father, Rodel, was working at sea. Our chaplain Jasper visited them and gave them a grant to help them buy food.

“It’s very hard for a seafarer like me to have such an incident happen to my family while I’m not around,” Rodel said.

“Thank you Sailors’ Society for being there when my family is in need.”
