Charity Shop, Preston

Stop! Did you know the used three-piece suite you were about to throw out can do some good? Or that book or unused coat?

The Serve Our Community charity will come to your house and collect it for free to their town centre charity shop. They’ll even do a full house clearance for you.

At the shop your goods will be cleaned, rejuvenated and sold, with the proceeds ploughed into helping Preston’s most needy and vulnerable people.

“All the money we make goes back into the community,” says Gill Wright, head of Serve Our Community, which is part of Longton Community Church.

“We need donations of furniture and many types of goods – nothing is wasted as anything we cannot sell is used in one of our projects. And we also need volunteers for the shop,”

The charity shop also hosts a Community Hub on alternate Tuesdays. from 10.30am-12.30pm.

Everyone is welcome for free refreshments and there are people on hand to give help and advice on Celebrate Recovery, the 12-step recovery programme which helps with addictions, debt advice or just to listen and chat.

The charity supports three key projects:

Inside Out – helps with practical need from gardening, cleaning and decorating, to providing furniture, bedding and clothes. with volunteers transforming  people’s lives. Only takes referrals from official agencies such as housing associations, GPs, social services, NHS, councils and police:

Christians Against Poverty, a national charity offering debt counselling; and

Celebrate Recovery.

Gill added: “Some of the stories we hear are frightening – we don’t know how fortunate we are. Jesus asked us to feed the poor, clothe those without clothes and visit those who are sick and in prison – and that is what we do.” The Friargate shop is run by manager Annmarie Dewhurst (above), plus volunteers. See also their website.


These include: 

Decent quality furniture of all types, including sofas, chairs, tables, beds, chests of drawers. Fire Resistant labels needed.

Electrical goods - a volunteer is qualified to test these so they are safe for sale

Clothing, including children’s, books, bedding, toys, nursery items, pots, pans, crockery and more
