Record Breaking Sales for the Shops

November and December have seen a huge rise in profit from the Watford Mencap shops, making an astounding £5209 in November, and £304 on a single day in December! The Watford Mencap shops are a great place to get a good bargain, and, in the current economic climate, and with Christmas just round the corner, many people are making the most of our quality items and low prices. Recent surveys within the stores have detected high rates of customer satisfaction, with comments including ‘lovely shop, lovely stuff!’, ‘my favourite charity shop!’ and ‘a great shop to suit all needs’.  We would like to thank all our fantastic staff and volunteers for their excellent work and helping us to raise so much money. 

It isn’t just our local shops that are doing well. Trading is very important and an integral source of income for us. Watford Mencap operates an online store via EBay and Amazon, selling just about anything, including books, toys, clothes, games, and anything else that we can get our hands on. All the generous donations we have received have allowed for us to make a great deal of profit online, which is further increased through gift aid. Please keep all the donations coming!
