The Rotary Shop

The Rotary Shop is unique among Charity Shops in that it raises funds for a wide range of local community groups and charities. Tens of thousands of pounds have been distributed to a wide range of sports, welfare and community groups in the area.

FROM THE COMMUNITY - At the Rotary Shop we are pleased to receive good quality goods from people wishing to support our local community.

TO THE COMMUNITY - The Rotary Shop then sells the goods back to the community (and to visitors) . . . and finally the best bit . . .

FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE COMMUNITY - Rotary uses all of the Shop profits to support local groups, projects and initiatives here in the Penzance and West Penwith area !

Donated goods, for which we are extremely grateful, can be dropped off at the shop between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm Tuesday to Friday. Collections can be arranged.

Groups and causes wishing to apply for funds from the shop, Grant Application Forms are available to download here:
