Pattons Community have compiled a national directory of charity shops which they are presenting as a website, and mobile APP. It lists charity shops all over the country by town / city – postcode or current location. As well as the shop listings there are also sections on ” The Charities ” and “ Good Stuff & Events “ On the Charities section any charity who wishes to participate gets a FREE page to present themselves, their work, awards, achievements, charity shops and any other info you feel is relevant . In the Good Stuff & Events section there will be details of organisations who support, supply, fundraise, recycle and generally live in and around the charity and third sector world. “ Events “ – in this section anyone can advertise a charity – fundraising event for a small investment of just £ 7.50 and so open it up to a much wider audience.
The mission is to show the public the vast amount of good work that is enabled by supporting charities, and the benefits this brings to local communities and wider society.
