  • Easy loading and unloading

Our Sue Ryder shop here in Swanage is a must to visit every day as new stock is put out daily, throughout the week - so you never know what surprises await you.

Updated information for donations

Due to Covid-19 safety measures detailed in our recent statement, there may be occasions where we have to refuse donations and ask customers to come back at a later date.  

Please call the shop before making your journey to check on the latest status and please do not leave donations outside shops when they are closed.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.


New stock throughout the day

We stock a whole range of high quality clothes, a wide range of novels for curling up with at night, or if you prefer to listen to a CD or watch a film we have those in abundance too.


There are plenty of car parks, be it on the sea front or behind the shops. There is also the opportunity of parking at nearby Norden or Corfe and enjoying a ride on the steam train into Swanage.

If you are in the Area for one of the local themed events such as Purbeck Arts Week, don’t forget to pop in and see our range of themed items.
