Birstall Charity Shop

About Us

Birstall Charity Shop was set up by Woodside Animal Centre as a means of generating more income for the centre. All proceeds made from the shop help to fund the centre and all of the animals we care for. 
We pride ourselves in our determined focus on volunteers, their strenghts and skill set matter a great to deal to the shop. We always ensure our volunteers skills are used to the best of their ability and in the most appropriate department. We place emphasis on our passion for: raising funds for Woodside Animal Centre; ensuring all donations are sold at the best price possible so that money is raised on behalf of those who have donated; our volunteers, we maximise their individual skills and always ensure tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.

Our stock is rotated every 20 days, so nothing sits on the shelf any longer than it needs to be. We will always ensure our stock is suited to the season, so there is always a bargain to be had!


Where to Find Us

Placed in the heart of Birstall high street where customers new and old can easily access our shop, making it easier than ever to donate. We do advise that any donations are given during opening hours as dropping them outside leaves donations open to theft or ruining the items.
