Each MECWAcare store has its own personality reflecting the location, its staff and volunteers. The stores all share in the same ideal, offering quality second-hand and vintage products and clothing, at prices not found in the high street stores.
From designer label dresses, kitchen and household utensils or just a good book to curl up with – you are sure to find something to take home when you visit one of our three MECWAcare Opportunity Shops.
All funds raised through the sale of goods in the Opportunity Shops go towards MECWAcare‘s important work with older people and people with a disability.
