More shops, more sales, more able to help

More shops

Our Octavia Foundation shops aren’t just crucial for raising funds to support our work, they’re a great way of reminding local communities of the help we provide on their doorstep. So we are pleased to be opening a new one in Chiswick High Street - if you are nearby pop in and say hello.

A great sales boost

In March, two volunteer teams joined us from Harrods for a Corporate Team Challenge Day. Together, they increased sales by over 300% compared to the same day last year. Many thanks to everyone involved.

Gift Aid to give more

We always need good quality items to sell in our shops, so please think of us when you’re de-cluttering.

Please also remember to Gift Aid your donations. When you do we can claim an extra amount on the sale from HMRC, which makes a big difference. For the last financial year, for example, with Gift Aid sales in our shops at more than £115,000 we were able to claim over £28,750 from HRMC.
