It’s been a whirwind for our “charity shop with a difference” so far this year! Our newly refurbished shop re-opened its doors in February 2020 and the tape was officially cut by our Patron, Gary Grant of The Entertainer Toy Shop on 6th March. Shortly afterwards we had to close due to the COVID-19 crisis, just when things were going well and feedback on the expanded shop was excellent (thank you!).
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.

How your Support helps others
Each year we assist over 9000 disadvantaged people. Since 1986 we have been supplying refurbished tools and equipment to vocational training projects and self-help groups in the UK and East Africa. Giving people skills enables them to become self-supporting. They can earn a living, buy food and send their children to school. Through this the cycle of poverty is broken.
The equipment we supply is donated to us by the public and refurbished by a team of dedicated volunteers in our Chesham workshop. Any items which are surplus or unsuitable for sending overseas are sold to help fund our work.
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.
