GRACE has always been fortunate and benefitted from generous preloved donations. However, we were being inundated with clothing and other household items that weren't on the needs list for refugee camps. GRACE needs to take care and send only what is required and requested from the warehouses that serve the camps. Volunteer time and warehouse space 'on the ground' is precious and limited, so we need to be sure we are not created extra work and storage problems with the items we send.
We found we were generating a stockpile of often beautiful preloved and sometimes brand new clothing, that just wasn't practical or the wrong size for the camps. That's when we began looking for a premises that could supply both warehouse facilities and a shopfront. We found our home in Leegate: a place that could provide an enormous amount of space for a small charity like ours. GRACEful Preloved charity shop was born.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds: we're a friendly bunch and there's a job for everyone in our team.
