The Little Fighters Cancer Trust employs various methods of fundraising and getting donations of goods and services, including the establishment of a charity shop in Paarl as a form of income-generation.
While we can only donate new clothing, toys etc. to Children with Cancer due to the fact that they have lowered immune systems and therefore a heightened risk of infection, your pre-loved items can still make a HUGE difference in their lives, by allowing us to sell them in our charity shop and use the proceeds from the sales to support Children with Cancer and their Families.
Providing the services and goods that we do costs millions of rands every year; and year on year the costs are just getting greater, with added Children with Cancer and their Families as well as the ever-increasing cost of living in South Africa.
We therefore started the LFCT Pre-Loved Shoppe, where we sell all kinds of pre-owned gently-loved items such as clothing, shoes, books, kitchen utensils, bric-a brac, etc.
We understand that the general public is also struggling and cannot always help with cash donations, but everyone has loads of “stuff” that they periodically need to get rid of.
We all toss out old clothes, shoes, handbags, curtains, linen, furniture, appliances, bric-a-brac, toys, books, stationery, pots ‘n pans, crockery & cutlery, old cellphones, old computers, and much more on a regular basis… stuff for which we no longer have any use but which is still in good condition and for which others would be grateful…
Things that have been lying around the house or stuffed in the back of your cupboards or squashed into a corner of the garage for ages can make a massive difference in the lives of Children with Cancer (who have a great many needs), and their Families who give up everything to bear the brunt of the expenses of caring for a Child with Cancer, therefore often going without themselves, or not being able to provide siblings of their Child with Cancer with their needs.
By donating these goods to the Little Fighters Cancer Trust Pre-Loved Charity Shoppe, you will be enabling LFCT to raise much-needed funds by selling these goods to those who would be happy to have them.
WE GUARANTEE – 100% of the proceeds of these sales will go towards helping our Little Fighters and their Families cope just a little bit better with the scourge of cancer.
