We have two cheerful charity shops in Norwich that help us raise vital funds and awareness in our local community.
Update from our shops:
Norwich Samaritans have re-opened our two charity shops following the end of Lockdown 2. Both shops have great displays and extensive ranges of Christmas goods, including many vintage products, so please do come and visit. We'd love to see you and offer you a warm welcome.
We'd like to reassure customers and donors our shops offer a thoroughly safe environment in which to shop.
You can find our boutique store, "Sams in the City", at 5 Westlegate NR1 3LT, in the heart of Norwich. Our other shop is found at 321a Aylsham Road NR3 2AB. Our opening hours for both shops are 09.30 - 16.00, Monday to Saturday.
If you're interested in volunteering for either of our shops, especially at our Aylsham Road shop, please do get in touch by emailing [email protected]
It costs on average £76,650 to run our branch every year. Funds raised in our shops help make it possible to continue our service.
The shops are run by our manager, Annie, assisted by two deputy managers, David and Luke, and supported by our team of shop volunteers.
Our shops are a great place to volunteer in a Support role. You can meet new people and gain new skills – knowing that all profits raised go towards your local Samaritans branch.
Watch the video below, drop in to one of our shops, or email us at [email protected] to find out more.
Donations are always welcome, and can be taken in at either shop.
