Age UK Medway have been operating a charity shop in the heart of Gillingham on Skinner Street for over 20 years.

There's a reason our customers describe the shop as "Aladdin's Cave", and, as Shop Manager Jo says: "once you're inside, we've got you!" because it really is impossible to leave without a treasure of some sort. All proceeds go towards Age UK Medway, which provides vital services to the older community of Medway and aims to help them Love Later Life.

Over the last few years the shop has made a lot of progress with the types of products that we offer, one main example of this is in the introduction of electrical items. All of the electrical items are function and safety tested before sale. However it's not just electrical items that we have, we also have a large range of other products such as:

  • Ladies, men's and children's clothing
  • Bric-a-brac
  • Household items
  • Books
  • Children's toys
  • Plus much, much more!

There are also some fantastic deals to be had, clothing prices start from as little as 50p, as well as any item for 75p or any 3 items for £1.50 from our sale rails.

In February of this year we were lucky enough to be able to re-fit the shop allowing us to create a more open, organised and spacious feel, this has allowed us to provide the local community with even more great offers as well as a great shopping environment.

Everyone is welcome, so why not come down and get yourself a great deal? You never know what gems you might find.

We're always looking for more items, so why not raid your roof space and clear your cellar's clutter? Your unwanted items can carry on being loved by someone else, while supporting a local cause at the same time.

Like all charities, we rely on donations as well as the sale of the goods in our shops, and it is for this reason that all donations are welcome. If you are unable to make it down to the shop to donate your items, we can come and collect them from you. To arrange a collection contact 01634 380195.
