We have  a chain of seven charity shops so please support them by taking in your unwanted items and, just as importantly, go there to buy clothes, books, DVD’s and a wide range of bric-a-brac.

If you have any items for the shops and are unable to bring them in yourself please contact us and we will arrange collection.

Charity shops are a great way to reduce, re-use and recycle. Get a bargain from us, look great too, help the environment, and support our plans for a local hospice.


Marie Walsh and Brian Challis  have written the following words about their  experience of volunteering for ECH.

“I started volunteering at the ECH shop in London Road North Lowestoft when it opened in 2011. I had never worked in retail before but the manager Linda was very supportive in helping me learn all aspects of running the shop. Volunteering gives me something worthwhile to do , helping others and raising funds to help build the hospice. When I go home at the end of the day I feel satisfaction knowing that I have helped others and am contributing something to the community for the future.”     Marie Walsh September 9th 2013

“Volunteering at East Coast Hospice gives you somthing to do and its helping others. Meeting new people and learning new skills in a relaxed enviroment is fun , every day is different with always something to do.”    Brian Challis  September 9th 2013
