Shop & Cafe Donate to our shops We are really pleased to confirm our Mountbatten shops have reopened. For more information on the shops, click here. We rely on the generosity of your donations to keep our charity shops well stocked with quality second-hand items. Please hang on to them for us. Our shops can only accept five bags or boxes at a time. Please do not overload the bags or boxes - if you struggle to handle a bag or box then our staff and volunteers will also find it difficult. Our shops will still be there another day so please do return another day of you have more than 5 bags or boxes. Please see below regarding our warehouse which handles large items. All the proceeds from our shops go towards providing services for Island people who are facing death, dying and bereavement.
