We are committed to helping children and adults with special needs improve their quality of life.
Every year we organise a series of day coach trips for senior citizens and people of all ages with Special Needs. This activity not only fosters the making of new friendships but provides stimulation by enabling them to not only enjoy a day out but to visit places they ordinarily would not be able to.
One aspect of Imperial Charity’s activities is to provide grants and donations to Special Needs Schools and
Projects throughout the County of Wiltshire. Schools in Swindon, Salisbury, Devizes, Chippenham and Warminster have all
benefited from grants this year.
A very popular and successful aspect of Imperial Charity’s remit is the provision of entertainment in Care
and Nursing Homes throughout the county of Wiltshire. With regular performances the Artistes build up a rapport with
the residents which can prove to be very beneficial for them.
In accordance with the regulations we will be able to re-open our two Westbury Shops on the above date.
This lockdown has been hard for everyone not least us.
Bob Summerfield, Business/Charity Manager of Imperial Charity has said that the lockdown has "knocked us for six"
He continued "We are hanging on by a thread and trying to keep going. If it wasn't for the fact that I've been able to access furlough pay for the staff and the local recovery support grant, we would have gone under by now." "The nearer we get to the 12th I am very cautiously optimistic that we can survive but it will need a lot of customers in both shops"
We are always looking out for donations. With the lockdown we have been unable to receive any items,
but from the 12th we will be able to resume.
Our High Street shop [01373 822207] accepts good quality:
Clothing, Kitchen, dining and household items, electrical goods, small furniture items, games, toys, puzzles, books, and more.
Our Warminster Road shop [01373 826826] accepts good quality:
