Gadsby Street Shop


Our shop on Gadsby Street is a furniture/large item showroom, the main location of our Community Larder, and the headquarters for our charity. It's just a three minute walk from Debenhams on the High Street.


We arrived at this location in 1998, and today we are busier than ever with new stock arriving on a daily basis. We offer a wide selection of pre-loved bicycles, sofas and furniture, new white goods, new beds and mattresses, and of course a variety of fresh and frozen food through our Community Larder. 

Feel free to drop off pre-loved and financial donations at our Gadsby Street location. You can drive right up to the front door and stop for just a few minutes. Our colleagues are always on hand to help you.


At Gadsby Street we accept payments by cash, cheques and credit/debit cards.
