We now sell and accept The Charity Shop Gift Card!

News and Blog

We are delighted to announce that you can now buy and redeem The Charity Shop Gift Card in our fourteen stores across West Sussex and East Surrey and at the Woodgate Hub in Pease Pottage

Developed and launched in partnership with the Charity Retail Association, The Charity Shop Gift Card is the only nationally accepted multi-retailer gift card that can be spent exclusively in charity shops.  

In the run up to Christmas, this makes a perfect gift for sustainable shoppers, lovers of vintage fashion, or those that are always hunting for a bargain. If delicious food and an energising coffee is more their thing, you can spend the gift card at the Woodgate Hub instead. The café sells a huge variety of homemade cakes and pastries, as well as light lunch options and refreshing drinks. 

Every purchase made with The Charity Shop Gift Card will help St Catherine’s Hospice provide expert end of life care to local people facing terminal illness and offer practical and emotional support to families pre and post bereavement. 

As well as the obvious benefits for our charity, the scheme supports the growing second-hand revolution, which is helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill. The gift cards themselves are recyclable and compostable, and are available from participating charities, supermarkets, and other major high street retailers. You can also purchase a card online – an even more ecofriendly way to shop preloved. 

Gary Powis, Head of Trading, said: 

“We are so excited to now be offering The Charity Shop Gift Cards in our stores. They are a fantastic way of encouraging our local community to shop more sustainably, whilst still supporting the vital work we do. We hope that joining this scheme will bring more customers through our doors so they can discover the quality preloved items we have on sale. We cannot wait to see the benefits this will have for our charity.”
