Our Charity Shop

The Danesbury and QVM Charity Shop in Old Welwyn High Street is our major source of income. Although we pay a commercial rent and our costs include management, heating and lighting and maintenance, the generosity of those donating goods and the work of the dedicated managers and volunteers mean that the Friends have a steady flow of funds to help us enhance the services we support.

The shop sells a wide range of donated goods including:

  • Second hand and nearly new clothes, evening dresses and dinner suits
  • Children’s clothes and toys
  • Pictures and jewellery
  • Books – old and new
  • CDs and DVDs
  • Dressing up clothes
  • Bric-a-brac

Call in and visit our friendly shop, regarded by some as the social hub of the village. Feel happy to browse. If you are looking for something special, please ask; our volunteers may be able to find it for you.

Please remember us if you have any items to donate. Should you have any difficulty in getting to the shop call and we may be able to collect.

The shop opening hours are 10am – 4pm, Monday to Saturday.


Apart from the Managers, the shop is staffed entirely by volunteers. If you feel you might enjoy being involved, please ask in the shop.
