Looking to bag a bargain, declutter or volunteer your time?

You can do all three at our charity shops in Ruislip and Hayes 

Our Harlesden shop remains closed.

We are now accepting donations in our Ruislip and Hayes shops

We can only accept 3 bags of donations at a time.  This is because we need to leave donated items for 3 days before handling. This is creating an issue with space. Please call us on 01895 625730 to check we have space for your items.

About our charity shops

Giving to a charity makes your community a better place to live, by helping to provide products and services for people who might not otherwise have access to them. Our charity shops provide valuable income to help us deliver our core aims. Whether you donate goods, shop with us or volunteer your time, you are helping older people enjoy later life.

Age UK Hillingdon, Harrow and Brent has three shops which are great places to find clothing, books, DVDs, household goods, and even small electrical goods. Currently only our Ruislip and Hayes shops are open, however we are planning to open our Harlesden shop if/when it is safe to do so. 

Volunteering in our shops

Volunteering has many benefits, such as gaining new skills, providing a sense of purpose and is a great way to meet new people. You do not need experience as we will provide full training although getting on with other people is important. The role involves a variety of tasks including receiving, sortings, presenting and selling donated goods. 

So if you have a few hours to spare each week and would like to help out in a friendly environment, maybe this is the role for you?
