The Cherry Lodge shop has very unfortunately had to be closed due to a sewage leak. The closure is expected to be for at least 10 days (from 25th May 2024) but could last considerably longer. Despite the blockage being cleared and the shop cleared, cleaned and decontaminated, it is likely that Thames Water will need to dig up the shop floor and replace the broken pipework which has been identified as the underlying cause. We are sincerely sorry for this disruption and ask everyone for their patience and support. Sadly we cannot accept any donations at this time.

In normal circumstances, the Cherry Lodge shop, in Church Passage, Barnet is kept well stocked with a wide range of good quality seasonal items. By donating or buying items, or by volunteering to work in the shop you can help us continue to provide our much needed range of services free of charge to people affected by cancer. Please remember that the shop is small so we advise you to phone first to check that we have room to take your donation straight away.

Gift Aid

By asking our donors to register for Gift Aid, we can claim an additional 25p in the £1 on all items sold in the shop.

If you agree, and are a UK taxpayer, you will be given a donor card, bearing your name and a number, to present at the shop each time you make a donation. At the end of the year, you will receive notification of the amount of money your goods have raised.

Over the year, this extra money from Gift Aid really makes a difference to our shop takings.
