The Community Shop has become a very important hub in the centre of the CBD. The Team of happy Volunteers always willing to be of assistance when you visit.

Skipton Community Shop

The Skipton Community "Op Shop" has become a busy focus of the Skipton Town Centre.

Well stocked through generous community contributions, and staffed by friendly volunteers, all proceeds from the sales of new and used items through the shop, and generous donations by various benefactors, are returned to the community, with the funds raised assisting many local organisations and groups to complete projects.

So much has been achieved by the small hard working group of individuals, and others unseen.
