Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland Charity Shops


Thank you so much to all of our lovely customers and supporters who have visited their local store since we reopened on 5 January.

Every donation you have dropped off and purchase you have made is helping make sure there’s no life half lived in our communities across Scotland.

Due to current restrictions some of our stores were unable to open as planned, and unfortunately, we may experience last-minute closures over the coming months. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Your pre-loved goods have the power to change lives

Your pre-loved goods are more than a donation – they’re the difference between someone just surviving or really living.

The pandemic forced our shops to close for months at a time. Because of this, we’ve lost hundreds of thousands of pounds of income. The devastating impact of this will take a long time to recover from.

If things don’t change, the support services people rely on will have to close. Calls for help will go unanswered.

Your donation matters. It will fund services that help people with chest, heart and stroke conditions – including COVID-19 – get back home from hospital and live life to the full.

By having a clear out and donating at our stores, YOU can be the difference between someone surviving or really living.

Thank you so much for your continued support. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
