The South Wilts Mencap Shop is the main source of funds for the charity enabling us to support local people with learning disabilities and their families. The Shop stocks good quality male and female clothing, including evening and formal wear, bric-a-brac, haberdashery, jewellery, books and children’s clothing and toys

100% Volunteers

Everyone who works at the Shop is a volunteer which means that after the usual property overheads have been paid all the money raised by the shop goes entirely to South Wilts Mencap which enables us to run clubs and activities for our learning disabled community.

We welcome new recruits to our friendly and enthusiastic team of volunteers, including people with learning disabilities.

This is what one of our newest volunteers has to say –

“I am new to the shop and it really has made a difference to my life. I really value the friendship of the team I work with and the knowledge that we are raising funds for Mencap. I enjoy getting into town on a Saturday for my shift and the fun of working in the shop.”
