Harington Charity Shop

The Harington Charity Shop on Archway Road is open seven days a week, selling clothes, shoes, bags, books, children’s toys, DVDs and interesting and sometimes unusual bric-a-brac. 

As well as raising vital funds for Harington, the shop also provides valuable work experience for some of our learners who are working towards a career in the retail sector.
