Our South Wigston Charity Shop

Charity Shops 

Our shops are open, 10 am - 2 pm Tuesday through Saturday.   

Please note, we're sorry but we can't take donations of items at the moment (Nov '23) due to storage space and processing. 

We urgently need volunteers for most days but particularly Thursdays and Saturdays. To volunteer, please email info@leicesteranimalaid.org.uk with your availability or call us on 01455 888257.   

Our two, onsite Charity shops in Huncote are open for business and we are currently taking donations. All donations go towards helping our cats and dogs. 

Offering free parking, the shops are stocked entirely by donations from the public and are staffed by volunteers committed to providing great service. We welcome good-condition donations of the items below.

Please remove any old batteries from toys and please make sure that any games or jigsaws have all their pieces. We also respectfully ask that all items and are in good, saleable condition. We sell:  

Toys Bric-a-brac Jewellery Adult's clothes
Pet items Books (paperbacks) Soft furnishings Household items
Shoes Bags Games Garden items
Craft items Toiletries Jigsaws Greetings cards


Every first Saturday of the month, our team holds a Coffee Shop and Sale onsite, 10 am - 1 pm, where light refreshments are available and there are bargains galore including linens, soft furnishings, children's toys and all kinds of treasure. 

Please note, we are grateful for all offers of donations but we do not accept quilts, pillows, old sofas or arm chairs. We also don't take electrical items, furniture or hard-backed books.  

Shoppers are welcome to continue wearing face coverings and dogs are welcome in our shops.  

The shops are open from 10 am until 2 pm Tuesday to Saturday. Please drop off any items you would like to donate during these times. You can see our location here.
