Create a summer look at a Children's Society Shop

I joined my colleagues Molly and Dan for a visit to our West Hampstead shop to see if we could pick up some bargains and refresh our wardrobes for the summer. 

If our photos inspire you to create your own summertime look, visit your local shop - you can find it by using our online map.

We have more 96 shops across the country, with around 2000 volunteers who generously give their time each week. Last year, they helped raise £8.02 million by selling donated goods through our retail shops which helps transform the lives of vulnerable children and young people. 

Find out how you can volunteer your time at our shops or donate your spare items and make a difference. 

Here's what we found...
