The Neighbourcare community shop has now
been open for 15 years. It is very well supported
by the people of Andover and the local area.
The aim of the shop was always different to
that of other charity shops by putting any profits
directly back into Andover's community. Anyone
visiting the shop can expect a friendly and warm
welcome from all staff and volunteers.
Donations of all types are welcome including
clothes (please ensure these are freshly laundered), toys, books, music and
household items provided they are in good
saleable condition. Donations can be collected and small items of furniture are acceptable.
At present time we are unable to accept electrical items. Please call 01264 404142 for further information.
