What we sell

The Workaid Shop is a “charity shop with a difference”, specialising in tools and hardware, gardening equipment, lawn mowers, electrical items, craft materials, patterns, wools and yarns, fabrics and general haberdashery, sewing and knitting machines. 

Stock changes every week, depending on what’s surplus to requirement for our projects or more valuable to sell.

If you are looking for something specific, please give us a call and we’ll let you know what we have.

All the proceeds are used to support our work to provide sustainable, vocational support to enable disadvantaged people in East Africa and the UK to learn skills and change their lives.

Our Workaid Shop is located next to the Workaid workshop in Chesham, HP5 2AA. You can call us on 01494 775220 or email

Our opening hours – Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

Are you looking for a Practical Gift?

Give a gift and help change a life.

Buying a Practical Gift is a great way to see what your donation is actually doing. A haberdashery kit for £10 can help a women’s co-operative establish their business. A carpentry kit for £30 given to a disabled self-help group gives them a chance to earn a living. £35 will buy a bicycle, providing a Community Health worker with the means to reach people with HIV/Aids.

Download a Practical Gift form today. At Workaid once we’ve received payment we’ll send you a gift certificate for you to give to your friend or relative.
