Royal Trinity Hospice is a real south London gem. If you’ve not yet heard, this Clapham-based charity is the oldest hospice in the country and provides crucial specialist palliative and end of life care to over 2,000 patients and their families each year in south and central boroughs. Much of the work they do is fuelled by the profits from one of their charity shops from across London. This latest one in Brixton will be the 22nd in their fleet.

This new store is going to be full of preloved clothes, trinkets, books and more making it a treasure trove of goodies for shoppers to find bargains to take home with them. And you don’t need us to tell you that this kind of shopping really is a triple win; you’ll save money, you’ll be helping out a fantastic charity and you’ll be doing your bit for the environment by adding to the sustainable fashion movement. Even the fixtures of the charity shop are beautifully second hand. Much of the interior has been designed using locally sourced, reclaimed materials meaning that the store is even more environmentally friendly.

The store is now open at 494 Brixton Road and the team are looking for both donations and volunteers to fill the shop. If you do have things you’d like to donate then it’s easier than ever- you can donate over the counter or there’s a collection service you can order to your door.

Here’s what, Neila McGregor, the shop manager for the new store has said: “I can’t wait to welcome our first customers and for them to see the care and attention we have paid to ensuring that it is a welcoming and stunning environment to make amazing discoveries of preloved fashion. Shops like ours rely on the generosity of our community to keep us going with great donations of women’s and menswear. We turn these donations into funds that support a local cause caring for people in our community every day. I look forward to getting to know our new customers and donors”.
