Our charity shops are opening

A huge thank you to everyone who donated items to our charity shops. We have been inundated, which has been incredible. We unfortunately don’t have the storage space to take any more donations until further notice. Thank you again and now we start the task of sorting, ready to get the stock out on the shelves.

Julian House is starting to open its charity shops.  This is great news for the charity because these popular retail outlets generate much needed funds for our various projects and services.

Initially just three outlets will be opening from Monday 15th June – Walcot St in Bath, Market Place, Frome and in the Shires in Trowbridge.  Opening hours will be slightly reduced (10-4) and social distancing measures will be introduced but otherwise we are hoping for business as usual.

For the first few weeks of opening we are asking that stock donations are not dropped off at the shops and instead delivered to our offices at 55 New King, Bath, BA1 2BN* on the following Fridays – 12th, 19th & 26th June (10:00-16:00).  All donations will be quarantined for 3 days and then pre-sorted for the shops.  This will help us to manage the huge influx of stock that is expected after the lock down and allow the shops a bit of breathing space whilst they get used to the new ways of working in their cramped stock rooms.

Items needed:

Women’s & Men’s Clothing – Clean and no obvious flaws or marks


Bric a brac – Items which you know others might buy

CDs & DVDs


Good quality duvet sets (no duvets please)

Small electrical items (must be in working order)

Unwanted gifts

No furniture or large electrical items

Thank you in advance for your support.

*For Frome and Trowbridge donations, if delivering to Bath is difficult please telephone the shop and book a drop-off slot – 01373 467940   01225 753648 respectively.
