Charity Begins at Home on the Streatham High Road

By: EJ Ward

When I said to people that I was going to move to Streatham the first thing people mentioned was the food. We are well provisioned with more places to eat, than Donald Trump had votes.

But, what people failed to mention was their dirty little secret, the charity shops. In the past charity shops were looked down upon by people, they were places for those who had nothing to go to buy other people's castoffs. Often the clothing would be on its last legs, or ill fitting. It wasn't  a place one admitted to going.
