Story

We opened our little shop for two reasons, before Christmas we had eight families in crisis in St Blazey. We put out a plea for help for food, decorations, good toys and more worrying, beds!

We actually had children sleeping on the floor! One family only had a cooker in their entire flat! We gave them Christmas, sorted furniture, the community did themselves proud. But what about the families who follow? Who are going to help them?

I contacted Suez, and to cut a long story short, am now the recipient of all good household furnishings, white goods, toys etc.

We opened the shop, we sell goods at rock bottom prices to pay our bills, and have gifted to many, including St Petrocs homeless charity.

In the first month, we saved 4 tonnes going to landfill or the incinerator. The shop has become a community hub. People travel from Penzance, Falmouth, Newquay, all over on a regular basis, for the bargains and the banter

We have outgrown our rented premises, and a piece of land within walking distance has come up for sale. It would give us room to grow, open a community cafe, help set up little upcycling businesses under our roof, help more people, and uplift the area. We can then reach out to people farther afield in Cornwall, giving them a better quality of life and a sense of belonging.

Can you help us? Whatever you can afford, would be greatly appreciated. We have limited time to raise this money.

what we offer you in return, is an invitation to our opening party, a chance to see how we are helping change peoples lives, and cake!
