When we are open
At Discoveries you’ll discover good quality pre-loved clothing, a unique treasure or that perfect gift. There is always a bargain to be found.
Shopping in Discoveries is a friendly and sociable experience; whether you are meeting up with friends for a browse or fancy a chat with our volunteers. Each day our hard working team re-stock the shop with hundreds of items, so each time you visit a new treasure is waiting to be found.
Income from Discoveries helps support local Youth and Community work, local and overseas Mission and helps St Peter's run the numerous groups which benefit the wider Yateley Community. We also support Mary’s Meals “Backpack Project” which provides school supplies to children in the world’s poorest communities, and Pilgrim Hearts Night Shelter in Bracknell.
Discoveries accepts the donation of a wide variety of items, such as good quality clothing and linen, electrical items, books, jewellery, toys, DVDs and bric-a-brac. We also accept shoes, clothing or leather items that are too worn to sell, as we can pass them on to our textile collection agents. We are unable to take any child car seats, booster seats, cots, crash/safety helmets or anything that requires a safety certificate. We are also unable to accept furniture, due to lack of storage space.
Discoveries is able to receive donated goods Monday to Friday from 9am until 3pm and Saturdays from 9am until 12pm. Please drop your donated items off in the cage outside our back door. Access can be found via our rear car park, or by walking around the outside of the building to the back of the shop.
If our donators are able, we encourage them to take part in our Gift Aid Scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, every time we sell something belonging to you we can raise 25% more from the government through Gift Aid - at no cost to you! Signing up is easy, and can be done in the shop by completing a simple form. We will then give you stickers with a unique number to tag your bag whenever you donate to us.
Discoveries is a wonderful place in which to work, and Sue and her team always welcome new volunteers. We have many varied positions available, from helping in the sorting room to tidying the shop or simply chatting to our customers. If you would like to volunteer please pop in for an application form and a chat, we would love to have you.
