We recently received a huge cheque from from Waitrose in Fleet. This is for funding our emergency food parcels.
We've got a new van
In addition, Farnham Lions and Hook and Odiham Lions have made donations from their own charitable funds.
The replacement van will be named "Bev" after our much-missed friend Beverley Allardice MBE.
What we do
Our mission is to recycle redundant household goods, appliances, clothing etc to benefit genuinely needy people in the area we serve and thereby reduce unnecessary waste to the advantage of the environment. At the same time we provide valuable work experience and skills development for many or our volunteer helpers.
Each month we receive hundreds of requests for the household items, bedding and clothing that are generously donated to us by members of our community.
Who we support
We regret that we are only able to help people who are referred to us by their social worker, tenant support officer, or other caring agency as being in need.
We are supported by local Lions Clubs under the administration of Lions Club of Fleet (CIO), a charitable incorporated organisation, registered in England & Wales No. 1177181.
Come and help us
We always welcome new volunteers and helpers. If you would like to find out how you could help us please contact us by phone or use our Contact Us Form.
Look out for our vehicles
Our vans have been in service 4 days a week and are familiar sights on the streets of Fleet and the other communities we serve.
Reliable transport is essential to the operation of the Store and whilst we have one new van, the other is getting into a poor state and becoming unreliable and expensive to run. We need to replace it. Click here if you'd like help by making a donation.
We have no regular funding, and are entirely dependant on donations from local people and organisations, so to continue this vital project we constantly need to raise funds. All donations and help with fundraising will be much appreciated.
The Store is operated entirely by volunteers from our local community. New volunteers helpers are always welcomed with open arms.
The majority of the people we help are in Hart and Rushmoor, with others in Farnham, Yateley, Hook, Odiham and other adjoining areas.
For details of exactly what we do please see the About Us page.
We urgently need more furniture, clothes and especially "white goods" (washing machines, fridges, fridge/freezers) and small electrical goods (toasters, kettles, microwaves). If you have any suitable items we will collect them at a time to suit you. Naturally there are some things we are unable to accept, due to legal, storage, handling or insurance requirements. Please see details in the Items We Can Accept menu tab above.
If you do have something to donate please contact us to discuss - we ask that you contact us by email where ever possible Usually our telephone is often engaged, but please do keep trying - you will get through eventually. Alternatively please use our Contact Us Form.
