Three children smiling in Sierra Leone

Together with our partners and volunteers from across the world, we are acting to change lives through a practical love and care for our neighbours.

One way in which we do so is through retail. Our first charity shop ‘The Changing Room’, which is located in the town of Garvagh, opened in 2016.

The shop is run by a team of committed volunteers. It benefits our work globally by raising money, and also benefits the town of Garvagh itself, as it brings people from the town and surrounding area together. 

If you’re in the area please feel free to pop in, pick up a bargain, drop off any items you would like to donate and chat to the volunteers who are working in the shop.
