HART operates shops in Alton to raise funds for the hospital. The pictures show our shop in the Bank Car Park in central Alton. The shops sell collectables, bric-a-brac, books, CDs and DVDs, greetings cards, jewellery and clothes. They also stock a range of wildlife related items, including bird food and bird and hedgehog boxes. The shops are able to take credit and debit card payments, making it even easier to support HART!
As the shops are stocked mainly with donations we are always pleased to receive your unwanted but good quality and clean items indicated in the list above. Please have a good look through your cupboards and take any unwanted, but saleable items direct to the Car Park Shop. Please bear in mind that we have to pay for all our rubbish to be taken away, so please be careful to not donate anything which is not saleable as it will actually cost the charity money to dispose of it for you. The only exceptions to this are clothes, shoes and books, as we can get good money for these from a recycling company.
A 10% discount voucher is available as a thank you for any "vintage" donations (at the shop manager's discretion).
Members receive 10% discount upon presentation of a valid membership card.

These hours are subject to the availability of volunteer staff but if you have seen something in the window of the shop when it is closed, customers can go to the Bank Car Park shop and, if possible, someone will come from there to open it.
We are always looking for volunteers to staff the shops, so if you are enthusiastic, friendly and have some spare time that you can give us, please get in touch, either in person at the Car Park Shop or by calling them on 01420 544864. You can also contact Jane, our shops coordinator, on 07966 223828.
