Our shop

Our charity shop in the heart of the city at 101 George Street, and it’s a great place to bag a bargain!  Our shop has been a proud part of the community for 10 years and it is still vital to raise awareness of our charity and fund our work supporting families in Aberdeen.  

Shop with us:
