Charity Shops


New charity shop set to open in Hereford

Following the success of our two charity shops in Gloucestershire, National Star is set to open its first ever charity shop in Hereford, close to Hereford Cathedral, this summer.

We’re also on the look out for volunteers who would like to join our friendly team! Contact Tina Walsh to find out more about the roles that will be available.

Visit our Gloucestershire charity shops today! 

Fashionable clothes, bestselling novels, value-for-money toys and must-have home accessories are on sale at our shops in Cheltenham and Gloucester. We also have a range of student-made ceramic and fused glassware items and handmade and printed cards.

If you’re a thrifty shopper we have secondhand style ideas that will help you ditch fast fashion and become more sustainable by choosing our charity shop finds. Remember to tag us in your social media posts using the hashtag #MyStarFind so we can see your sustainable style.

Whatever you choose to buy, your support will help young people with complex disabilities to achieve their aspirations. Our shops are open Monday to Saturday 9am – 4.30pm, so there will be plenty of time to bag a bargain!

Donate today

How to donate your goods to our charity

You can drop any items off at our charity shops during opening hours. If the shops are closed, pop back and see us another time rather than leaving your valuable items on our doorstep. Due to the health and safety guidelines we will be following in light of COVID-19, we ask that all donations are dropped off in bags or boxes. Please be patient when waiting for your donations to be displayed in our shops while we adhere to stringent handling and sorting procedures. 

We will always need:

  • Men’s, women’s and children’s clothes
  • Accessories such as handbags, jewellery, shoes and boots
  • Bric-a-brac including ornaments, tableware and household goods
  • Books, CDs and vinyl records
  • Unwanted gifts
  • End-of-line, samples or surplus stock from local businesses

We would like your donations to be clean and in a usable condition. It also goes without saying that the better the quality of your items, the more money we can raise. Find out more about charity shop items we cannot accept.

Gift Aid It

If you are a UK taxpayer you can add to the value of the items you donate by signing up to Gift Aid. You can register in-store to let us claim Gift Aid or complete a Gift Aid form and bring it in with your donated items.

eBay Charity Shop

If you’re unable to visit us in person at our locations in Cheltenham or Gloucester, why not take a look at our National Star ebay store and browse our items for a bargain!
