Charity Shop

We have a very popular independent charity shop at our premises on Hamlet Court Road. Any donations we receive are sold and the funds are used to help run our Community Services for local blind and partially sighted people.

Opening Hours

Our charity shop is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4pm.

We are closed on Sundays and bank holidays.

For any enquiries regarding the charity shop, please call 01702 342131.


If you have any unwanted clothes, shoes, books, bric-a-brac, pictures, vinyl, CDS, DVDs, electrical or homeware we would love you to donate it to us.

We are unable to accept any large items of furniture, but do please call us to enquire about your donations.

Gift Aid

We operate a retail gift aid system at our charity shop. Please ask a member of staff for a gift aid form when you drop your donations off to us. You can help us to raise even more money to support the work of our charity.

Online Sales

To make the most from the items donated to us, we sell books, DVDs, CDs and other items online.

Some of your donated goods are sold to a wider audience on the Ebay website, where 100% of the proceeds from sales directly benefit Southend in Sight.
