Whether you are looking for an item to upcycle, a special outfit, bits and bobs for your home, toys to keep the little ones busy, craft and haberdashery items, jewellery, books, DVDs, CDs, greeting cards and much more besides, there is plenty for you to choose from in both of our shops.
Stock changes every day, so whenever you are in town, pop in, say hello and enjoy a spot of bargain hunting. You will be assured of a friendly welcome and there is nothing more satisfying than finding just the right thing at a rock bottom price.
Perhaps you are thinking of joining us as a Volunteer in Blandford? Then pop in for a chat with any of our friendly team. They love what they do, always have fun and make new people very welcome. They will be pleased to share their experiences with you and talk about what volunteering with us involves.
My name is Julie and I have worked in the Blandford Hospital Charity shop for quite a few years now having been persuaded to join by a friend. I haven’t looked back!
I have made great friends in the shop and enjoyed getting to know the other team members and the regular customers. We, the volunteers, take a great pride in the shop and what the income from it allows “The Friends” to do at the hospital and in the local community. We work hard but we have great fun doing it and we keep coming back for more! One shift soon leads to a regular shift and then more, and more!
There’s nothing more satisfying than having a customer ask “have you got a certain something?” and finding just the right item for them! A happy customer is a returning customer so we try and send everybody away happy!
Some of my favourite moments in the shop have been helping brides to be find their perfect wedding dress at a bargain price.
If you are thinking of joining us, then please do. It is incredibly rewarding and lots of fun. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain so come along and see for yourself!
