The Vineyard Community Centre exists to serve the local community in Richmond, helping those in crisis and giving hope for life.
The morning drop-in will have a reception and be aimed at specific needs of body mind and spirit for those who are in crisis or homeless. We will offer food, clothing, shower facilities and comfort.
There will be opportunities to progress from crisis to community through the afternoon community café. It will encourage social inclusion and be used by groups and individuals who are marginalised.
With a new focus on fashion, we’re selling good quality women and menswear at prices that really tempt! New donations are displayed daily and we always have a sale rail.
“A Hidden treasure On the Hill”... is what one of our customers said about the Vineyard Charity shop.
We sell good quality women and menswear at prices that really tempt! New donations are displayed daily and watch out for special sale days too! Openining hours are: Monday - Thursday 10am-4pm and Friday 10am-12.30pm.
Besides clothing please donate toys and books; if we can’t sell any items we will either pass on to a partner Charity or get them recycled. All proceeds from the shop and recycling go towards the running of the Centre.
We have an urgent need for donations of mens clothing, underwear, sleeping bags, tents and toiletries. Those who visit the morning drop-in and are unable to afford clothing we give out according to needs. In 2013 we issued mens clothing 504 times and women 109 times.
A big thank you to all our shop donors, customers and volunteers who made 2013 such a successful trading year. The Charity shop raised £24, 475.00. All money raised goes to support the work of the Centre.
Please keep the donations coming in! And if you can spare some of your time we’d love to hear from you as a shop Volunteer!
