IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Due to the continuous increase in our operating costs and to continue donating to charity, we have taken the difficult decision to increase our percentage on client sales. 

The increase will be 5%, thus enabling us to donate 30% to worthy causes instead of the present 25%. This will take effect on items sold after the 1st October 2015.

We have now been in operation for 45 years and taking this decision has not been an easy one.  However, we hope and trust that we can continue to count on your support.



We thank everyone who uses our shop, it is only through your support that we can help others. We remind you that the shop and library are manned entirely by volunteers who do not take wages or charge any expenses. ALL PROFITS go to the charities we support.
