Mary's Living & Giving Shops

Mary Portas in a Mary's Living and Giving Shop

Mary's Living & Giving shops are charity shops with a difference. Filled with designer donations these charity boutiques are a fantastic place to both shop and volunteer.

Set up with the help of retail expert Mary Portas back in 2009, they've continued to blossom into beautiful, boutique charity shops. Every item donated and sold funds the vital work we do here at Save the Children.
