Bridges Community Shop

Bridges first community shop is open and off to a great start!

We have been overwhelmed with peoples support and generosity with their donations. We have received some amazing items and we just hope that they keep on coming. We have had some fantastic feedback… the fact that every penny raised in the shop stays in Monmouthshire is going down really well.” - Allison Saunders, Store Manager


Donations can be made to the shop, Bridges Centre reception or to the orange textile bank in Bridges car park.

We really do need a few more regular volunteers to help at the shop, even if just for a couple of hours a week. Help is needed on the shop floor making sure the shop is fully stocked and presentable, providing support to customers and processing payments through the till. If organising and processing is more your thing there is plenty going on behind the scenes you can help with.

We have now set up a successful eBay shop to run alongside the community shop. If you are a whiz with a PC and Ecommerce we would love to hear from you as we are always looking for more volunteers. If you are able to lend a hand – even if it’s just a few hours a week please get in touch. You can call Allison (shop manager) or Denise (deputy manager) on 01600 715277 or alternatively email
