Charity shops play a positive roll in our communities and bring huge value for a variety of reasons. They not only raise awareness of the cause, but form part of the fundraising efforts to generate much needed funds to support the work of the charity.
Purchasing items in charity shops at affordable and reduced prices is not only appealing but also gives people the opportunity to contribute to the cause. Reusing second hand items is a form of recycling and reducing the amount of waste in landfill. Fundraising is vital for the success of Ark Housing as the revenue raised from our charity shop has helped to purchase, upgrade and maintain property for our residents giving them a place to call home.
