Try Second Hand this September

Treasure Hunting at our Charity Shops

Shopping second hand not only allows you to bag yourself a bargain, but it also means you’re making a positive impact on our planet while supporting causes in your local area. This September we’re putting the spotlight on sustainability and encouraging our supporters to explore the world of pre-loved items and second hand clothing.


Why Second Hand Matters

Second Hand September isn't just about finding fantastic deals; it's about making a statement. By choosing second-hand treasures over brand new items, you're helping to reduce the demand for new production and the associated environmental impact. It's a win-win situation – you get to shop guilt-free and support the work we do at the same time!


Get Involved

If you're passionate about supporting animal welfare and reducing waste, Second Hand September is the perfect time to get involved. Here's how you can make a difference:


1. Shop with Purpose: Visit our charity shops and shop consciously. Every purchase directly contributes to our cause and you’re guaranteed to find a treasure trove of pre-loved items in all of them.

2. Donate: Clear out your closet and donate anything you no longer wear; it’s time for someone else to love it!

3. Spread the Word: Share your Second Hand September finds on social media and encourage others to join the movement by tagging us @bathcdh.charityshops
