A charity pop-up shop is exactly that – a shop that pops up out of nowhere.
At Save the Children, we have more than 120 permanent shops across the country. Most are run by volunteers who are experts in running charity shops. Choose this challenge and your mission will be set up your own pop-up shop selling donated, second-hand or new goods, or stuff you’ve made yourself.
The first thing you’ll need to do is get permission to set up your own shop. There are lots of places where this could work, including your classroom, village hall, playground - even the cupboard under the stairs. You’ll need to think about your stock. What are you going to sell and where will you get it from? You’ll also need to decide whether to collect all different types of stock, or just one type in particular, like CDs, books or toys.
If you have an eye for a bargain, take the pop-up shop challenge. The money you raise will help save lives.
