Recycle, Upcycle, Shop for Bargains & Make a Difference

Quality goods at bargain prices

The Friends of Blandford Hospital are very proud of their 2 Charity Shops in Blandford Forum and Sturminster Newton which provide a steady income for the charity generated through the hard work and commitment of the team of volunteers that work there. Everything we sell is second hand/pre-loved but we do not compromise on quality despite keeping our prices low.

Donating items to our Charity Shops is a really great way to support the work of the Friends of Blandford Hospital.  Income generated by those goods will be used to support projects at the hospital and throughout our local community.

Management costs are minimal in our Charity shops with the shops being predominantly run by a fantastic team of volunteers. If you are considering Volunteering in Blandford or Sturminster Newton then do get in touch. Go to Volunteering Page

Our Shops and Volunteers

We have over one hundred volunteers across the two teams who run our two very successful charity shops. Our Volunteers are the Charity’s greatest asset and they each bring their own individual skills, talents and humour to the shops.  Together they are not just strong teams but a family which are proud to work alongside each other.

With a new shop management structure soon to take place a shop manager for each shop will share their time between the shops and the Friends’ Office.

If you might like to join us, do pop in to either shop for a chat with the shop manager or any of our team.  Pick up an application form or give us a call on 01258 451456.  We look forward to hearing from you and discussing the volunteering opportunities we have available in Blandford and Sturminster Newton.
