Our charity shops

Alzheimer Scotland is proud of our two charity shops in Forres and Golspie.

Both our shops are based right in the heart of local communities, staffed by our dedicated volunteers who will be happy to help you locate the hidden treasures available in-store. 

Our shops rely on donated items from generous members of the public and all profits from both shops help support people living with dementia, their families and their carers.

Items our shops can accept:

  • general bric-a-brac
  • tableware
  • clothing & footwear
  • accessories
  • jewellery
  • toys (if kite marked)
  • books
  • genuine CD’s/DVDs
  • small items of furniture
  • some electrical products
  • sealed beauty products.

If you need any more guidance about what items our shops are able to sell, our volunteers would love to help.
