Charity Shop News


It is with heavy hearts that we will be sadly closing the Costa del Silencio charity shop at the end of March. An increase of charity shops in the area has meant that economically the shop is no longer viable. This was our first shop and we are very sad to see it close, but we feel we have no choice, as we have to now concentrate our efforts on our remaining two shops which are of course situated in the busier tourist areas.

As a result, EVERYTHING MUST GO, and we will be holding a Buy One Get One Free sale from this weekend. In fact, come and see us, as no reasonable offers will be refused. We thank Julie and all the volunteers for all their hard work, and we hope to see them in the Los Cristianos (Calle Reveron near the harbour play park) or San Eugenio (opposite Hotel La Nina, near Amandas bar) shops.
