The RSPCA is perhaps the country’s most famous animal charity and its store on Barking Road is part of the quest to eliminate animal suffering. Whether you’re dropping off unwanted goods or stocking up on someone else’s, you can rest assured your contributing to something wholly worthy.

Cancer Research UK, Ilford

Positioned a little outside of the city, Ilford’s Cancer Research UK branch is somewhat more relaxed than one you might find centrally and what’s more? You’re more likely to be the first to find that hidden treasure you’ve been on the look out for.

British Red Cross, Dalston

Spanning everything from keepsakes to clothing, books to furniture, the British Red Cross store in Dalston is the kind of place you’ll find something you never knew you needed but you’re altogether glad you came across.

Sense, Hackney

Sense was launched to aid the deafblind and its shop in Hackney is just one of many situated across the UK. Can’t make it into store? You can shop the more collectable items on their eBay store.

For those who live centrally, the British Red Cross shop in Barking is based a little further afield than its Dalston-based sister previously featured, but it’s another of those lesser-known charity shops that are sometimes more likely to present a treasure trove find. Save Save Save Save
