Charity shops

We have recently merged with ACACIA UK, another small Oxfordshire based charity that shares our passion for ensuring the most vulnerable children in Kenya and Uganda – particularly those with developmental disabilities – gain access to education.

ACACIA has four wonderful charity shops in South Oxfordshire – in Abingdon, Faringdon, Grove and Wootton, as well as an eBay shop.

How to help


ACACIA’s shops accept donations of:

  • clean and sellable men’s women’s and children’s clothing & shoes
  • books
  • children’s toys
  • homeware
  • jewellery
  • accessories
  • quality linens
  • small electrical goods in working order.

ACACIA welcomes donations of any kind of foreign currency, and any sort of discontinued British coins, and damaged or partial British notes.

Unfortunately, for safety reasons they are unable to accept children’s car seats, buggies or prams, bike helmets, or bladed items. They also cannot accept large items of furniture, kitchen white goods, mattresses or duvets.

If you have an item to donate, and you’re not sure if they can accept it please just call in advance.

Please don’t leave donations outside ACACIA shops when they are closed. They are often stolen, damaged or scattered, and cause an unsightly nuisance to our neighbours. In 2017, donations left overnight for ACACIA’s Abingdon shop were set alight, causing the destruction and closure of the whole shop until 2020!


ACACIA’s shops could not operate without their amazing team of hardworking, cheerful volunteers.  People volunteer in ACACIA UK shops for all kinds of reasons: because they support our mission to help some of the world’s most disadvantaged children; to gain workplace skills and experience; to meet people and enjoy team work; to stay active; to contribute specialist knowledge such as antiques and collectibles; and to have fun.  ACACIA has volunteers who work a few hours a week, or come in every day. If you are interested, just drop in at your local shop and ask to speak to the manager, or email the ACACIA Shops Coordinator.
