There is no Dogs Trust on Lower Marsh, there is a shop called PAWS, google it and you would be rather impressed as there is a few PAWS out there, BUT their actual website is www.phoenixpaws.org.uk/ they are a couple living in a lovely detached country house with a few birds, cockroaches and a goat in their garden.
They have a few shops in London, they are not for profit business, not a charity, so the shop owner can pay themselves what they like and give a little to Paws at the end of year, dont bother contacting them to adpopt a cat or rabbit they will not get back to you. They only sell donated items from the public.

Waterloo Action Centre now has a recycling area (charity shop) for books and clothes. Warm clothes etc are passed on free to homeless people and others in need. We expect everyone else to pay something. WAC does not receive any public funding. Asher, who runs recycling also sells her be spoke knitting and textiles has recently added headdresses inspired by recent participation in Trinidad's Carnival.

I recently went into the charity shop at Waterloo Action Centre, its fantastic, and the woman who runs it is lovely and a fab knitter, and you can rest assured all the money goes to the community.

Since this thread was started, a YMCA charity shop has opened at the Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre.
