Loftus Old Co-Op Building Charity Shop

Our shop and building is open Monday to Thursday from 9am until 4pm AND Saturday between 10am & 2pm.

Opening Hours

Our shop is largely staffed with VOLUNTEERS from the community and we simply could not offer this service without their kind and reliable support. I could not leave this page without offering and recording my sincere appreciation and thanks to this happy band of people.

We receive a huge variety of furniture, electricals and “brik-a-brak” donations from all over Teesside & North Yorkshire and beyond, the generosity of our donators is truly outstanding. Their continuing and generous support provides a major part of our income, which in turn enables us to provide the variety of services and facilities to the community.

So please pop in a take look and support your local charity shop. You can check out our donate page to see what you can donate.

Food Bank Parcels

Like so many places up and down the country, sadly there is still a need for this service within our community and whilst there is no longer a Trussle Trust Foodbank in operation in Loftus, we at "The Community Hub" here in Loftus are still very keen to support those who need it within our community.

So if you are able to help, please feel free to drop in your food contributions to our coffee shop and we will sort them into parcels and pass them on to those that need them.

Non-perishable goods are best, tins, pasta, biscuits, coffee, tea, sugar, gravy granules, breakfast cereals, squash, sweet treats, shampoo, soaps, toothpaste etc.
