The Foundation’s first retail outlet in the Trinity Walk Shopping Centre, Wakefield, opened in November 2019. The outlet focuses as a collection point for donated goods (generally clothing and household items), as a charity shop selling a range of new products and as an information centre for those seeking to support local communities and individuals in need.
Following enforced closure due to the Coronavirus epidemic in March, we are now scheduled to re-open on Wednesday 1 July with our regular hours of 10am to 4pm Wednesdays to Saturdays.
Our campaign #WakefieldCares is specifically raising funds for those affected directly as a result of Coronavirus. Donations can made at the shop during opening hours, or online at www.justgiving.com/campaign/WakefieldCares or by cheque to our offices at 13 Upper York Street, Wakefield WF1 9NW (cheques made payable to Community Foundation Wakefield District).
We have a number of vacancies for volunteers at the shop, so if you van spare a few hours each week then we’d love to hear from you. Full details are available under job opportunities.
