About CLIC Sargent
About This Shop
Every day 10 families are told the devastating news that their child has cancer.
CLIC Sargent is the only charity offering them care and support, every step of the way. Our 28 charity shops play a vital role in raising funds for our work. Since our first shop opened in Exeter in 1989, our customers have helped us to raise an incredible £25 million! Last year alone, the shops raised £2.1 million, and we were proud to win a national award for the supported way we work with volunteers. Our staff and volunteers carry out a wide variety of tasks – sorting through donations of clothes, shoes, books, toys, bric-a-brac, and accessories. Once they’ve done that they have to steam the clothes, refill the shelves, price new stock and remove unsold stock. That’s on top of serving a steady stream of customers. If items don’t sell, they’re passed on to another nearby CLIC Sargent shop. What doesn’t sell in one area may be snapped up a few miles away. On our website, our online shop sells a range of new items: greetings cards, jewelry, toys, t-shirts and more, with all profits helping children and young people with cancer: Our shop on eBay is a place to show off our more collectable items. By opening up bidding to the whole eBay community, items are more like to reach their full value. And so we can maximise the funds raised for our work.
