Welcome to CART

What does the charity do?

  • We recycle your donated personal, educational, vocational and first aid items.
  • Goods are sold in our charity shop to raise essential funds; items requested by groups in Africa are sorted and packed ready to send; the rest are recycled.
  • We support small scale, sustainable self-help projects with known organisations.

How are we different from other charities?

  • Every penny you give goes directly towards sending goods to Africa.
  • We are run entirely by volunteers both in the UK & Africa. No salaries or fees are paid.
  • Goods are shared amongst those with the greatest need, regardless of faith, religion, social status, ethnicity or gender by local organisers of proven ability and trust. Read about our work in our projects page
Please note that the CART Shop will be CLOSED this Friday 25 March due to staff illness. We will update you with more information when we can.

Can you help? We have openings for shop assistants (voluntary, unpaid) on a Tuesday morning, Tuesday afternoon and Saturday morning. Please contact Susan on 01484 423453 on Thursdays

Covid19 protection measures will remain in place. Please wear a mask if possible, and use hand sanitizer. We welcome items for donation (large items by prior arrangement (details above).
