Charity clothing store for children launched in Barnstaple

Sustainable fashion is increasingly on the minds of anyone shopping for clothes – with a North Devon charity shop revamping its store to exclusively sell children’s outfits.

Barnstaple’s Cancer Research UK charity shop has been around for 30 years and sells pre-loved clothing for adults, but now focuses on the youth market.

Catherine Spurway, Gammon Walk Shop Manager, explains: “We are delighted to offer a shop exclusively selling donated children’s clothing and toys to raise vital funds to support the work of Cancer Research UK.

“There is no other store like ours in the area, so we are excited to offer what we hope will become a community hub to shop, donate and volunteer at a store, created for We recognize that children grow up fast and it can be expensive to buy brand new outfits, so we hope that parents and caregivers can bring their unwanted items and can pick up a few at the same time.

“We are always on the lookout for good quality children’s clothing, toys, books, media and gear.”

The official opening of the store

Barnstaple’s group of babies and toddlers ‘Baby and Me at Trinity’ have been invited to the opening party to explore all that is on offer as well as enjoy some reading time and games, there will be a chance for parents and caregivers to bring in clothes that no longer fit their children and seek to buy pre-loved clothes for their little ones.

Catherine adds: “The project is on the morning of Wednesday June 29, we organize a closed hour for parents and children with games and reading sessions. We will then have a ribbon cutting to launch our new offer at 10 a.m. and welcome the public.

“It’s the ultimate way to support the incredible work of Cancer Research UK with the ability to buy locally and in the most eco-friendly and sustainable way.”
