@twentyone. After closing the previous premises in February 2019 new premises were extensively refurbished and we re-opened in June 2019.
The shop supports recycling and reuse, reducing waste and financial surpluses are donated back
to local grassroots organisations. We also offer free items supported by a Community, Capacity and Resilience grant to help alleviate poverty locally.
The Community Shop is delighted to accept donations of clothing, brick-a-brack, small electrical household items books, cutlery, and crockery. Due to the limited storage space it is unable to accept or offer white goods or large furniture items
It is open Mon - Fri from 10.30am until 3pm and on Sat -10am until 4pm. Closed Sundays. We are volunteer run so please check our Facebook page for up to date information.
We are currently working toward our project involving pet therapy, called 'Happiness Hounds for People'. Following a small pilot this work is innovative and unique to the area but has significant impact and is hugely beneficial to wellbeing, physical and mental health.
Community Led Action. Whilst funding for this work has now completed - the work goes on! We continue to support the development of the hub and outreach work, frequently partnering with other organisations to ensure we collectivly reach those who are vulnerbale, disabled, isoalted and lonely. Although based in Campbeltown our work extends across western and into mid Argyll, and further in some instances. .
Our hub area is a meeting place for lcoal people and groups with capacity for up to twenty. Here, people can come together and share interests, chats and find social connections and new friendships. We hope some of these chats and get together's will give us an insight into what is important for local people and shape the focus of our future activities.
Currently we are able to support outdoor activities, offer IT support and befriending for adults. Alongside this our volunteer led small shop support recycling, re-use and reduces waste whilst helping to alleviate poverty.
We also provide workshops and activities in small crafts, and supported learning alongside small group sessions in mindfulness, confidence and exercise .
The Shed – formerly Campbeltown Men’s shed. The Community Bureau was approached to take over the management of this small group and now operates as part of our workstreams. Men of all ages are welcome to come along and take part where they can share existing skills, learn new ones as simply enjoy the company of others who have similar interests.
