This is a free service, a room where you can donate items that you no longer need so that someone else may give them a new lease of life. Donations of clothing, surplus art materials, fabric, crockery and bric-à-brac are always welcome.
Located near the London Road entrance on our Ground Floor, the Swap Shop is open to all and everyone is welcome to rummage in the trove of items donated by others.
The Swap Shop is run entirely by the Green Team volunteers. More information about donating items, and kind reminders about what they cannot accept, can be found here. You can also read our ongoing commitment to sustainability here.
The Swap Shop also runs regular clothes swap events.
The Gregory Liam Foley Library
St Margaret’s House has a purpose-built reference library of books and other printed and visual media. The Library also doubles as a lounge area and is equipped with free Wifi, a hotdesk PC and tea- and coffee-making facilities.
The St Margaret’s House Library was inaugurated following a generous bequest from Gregory Liam Foley (1969-2011). The collection is always expanding through the generosity of our supporters. If you have any unwanted volumes in need of a good home, you are encouraged to donate them to our collection. Donations of books, journal articles and DVDs are kindly received.
