Charity Retail News Round-Up – Week Commencing 25.07.22
Each week we share with you our pick of the best stories on charity retail, shopping secondhand and the circular economy from the UK, Ireland and around the world.
We’re also now going to add links to relevant Charity Retail Learning courses associated with each article to help you implement some of the ideas we’re sharing
Here’s our pick from the past 7 days
Barnardo’s launch their “Fashion For All” campaign
Inclusivity has never been more important – or higher on the agenda. And this brilliant new campaign from Barnardo’s smashes that message.
Stock appeals on the rise
We’re hearing from many of you that getting good quality stock to sell is a growing challenge. Peer to peer selling, big lockdown clear outs and people holding onto clothes for longer driven by sustainability & cost of living issues all mean there’s less being donated.
There’s still plenty of stock in the nation’s wardrobe though – so we have to savvy about how we ask for it. What have you been doing to successfully generate more stock for your shops?
Appealing to GenZ
We loved this blog by Dave Chunilal from Nisyst about how to reach a generation who are so important to our sector. Younger people have previously been less engaged with charity retail so now is the time to take advantage of their growing interest in sustainability and values-driven business
Wondering what to do with all those donated toys…?
Here’s an idea! Showing charity shops can bring joy in so many different ways! And great to see our friends from SVP England & Wales mentioned here, who run the Revive shop at the Kirkstall household recycling centre

Lovely to see the charity shop team going that extra mile for it’s donors and is an excellent example in how charity shops serve as an intrinsic part of their local community
