About Mercy In Action
About This Shop
Mercy in Action works amidst some of the poorest communities in the Philippines.
We are committed to rescuing vulnerable children from the dangers of the streets by offering them food, nurture, and an education. We have two children’s homes, as well as a busy drop-in centre to help support street children on a daily basis. Over time, our work has grown to encompass projects which are vital for the whole community, such as house building, small business enterprises, and schooling and feeding programmes.
To help fund our projects we have 15 charity shops around the UK, mostly around Bath and the Beds/Bucks region. Our charity shop managers are passionate about fashion and vintage and are trying to break the stereotype of the traditional charity shop. Our shops are full of designer items as well as lovely vintage pieces, and several of our shops specialise in antique and up-cycled furniture. Whether you are looking for the hottest fashion trends, that classic look, wanting to browse through books and vinyl, or just stocking up on clothes and toys for the kids, you’re bound to find something you love in one of our shops. Why not pop in, pick up a bargain, and be a part of helping to transform lives in the Philippines? We are also always keen on any donations or volunteers!
