About Going For Bust
About This Shop
Going For Bust is a Breast Cancer Charity, dedicated to raising funds through its charity shops, for local hospitals and support groups, in the fight to combat Breast Cancer in the Dorset and Hampshire areas.
The charity was set up by local people, having been directly affected by Breast Cancer, who felt that charity shops offered the best opportunity to provide both a sustained and substantial support for the people who live in the area, as there was a clear shortfall from funds supplied by the NHS.
The name ‘Going For Bust’ is intended to be both uplifting and forward-thinking, whilst generating a positive message, which is hopefully reflected by the attitude of the staff and volunteers in the shops, many of whom have been affected directly by Breast Cancer themselves.
Since its inception at the beginning of 2013, with the opening of the first-ever charity shops, located in West Moors, Dorset, we have been able to open a further six shops due to its success. These are located in Ashley Cross, Poole, Ringwood, Verwood, Westbourne, and Wimborne.
