The Opportunity Box was set up in 2013 as a ‘pop-up’ shop for one week to raise funds for the Centre. It proved incredibly popular and five years later is still going strong! In January this year we moved into new premises on Bank Street in Coleford, where the shop is on one level so accessible for those with limited mobility, pushchairs and wheelchairs.


The shop sells a wide range of items including babies, children’s, men’s and ladies’ clothes, bric-a-brac, small items of furniture, household items such as curtains and bedding and a wide range of children’s toys and equipment. There is loyalty scheme and several ‘black bag’ sales are held throughout the year. Check out the Facebook page (Facebook//Opportunity Box Children’s Charity) for details.


We have a loyal group of volunteers who give their time to help in the shop and we are extremely grateful for their support. If you would be interested in volunteering either pop in and speak to one of our shop managers, Tracy or Michelle, or phone them on 01594 810587.
