Fundraising for our animals – URGENT APPEAL!

We have two Bleakholt Charity Shops, one in Bury town centre and the other is in Ramsbottom. We urgently need more Volunteers to ensure the success of our shops and we cannot do it without you. If you can spare some time, even if it’s just a few hours a week, we would very much appreciate your support and you don’t need loads of experience. Volunteers are an integral part of the Bleakholt team and we could not achieve our mission without them. Every role is so important to us and the success of our Sanctuary.

The Shops are at:

23 Princess Parade, Millgate Shopping Centre, Bury, BL9 0QL

48 Bridge Street, Ramsbottom, BL0 9AQ


Please contact Diane on 01706 398567, email us at, or simply call into our Shops

If you would like more information, please call in at one of our shops for a chat. If you know someone who may be interested please pass this on to them and urge them to contact us!

Volunteer Shop Assistants help support the work of the Charity Shop team by ensuring that customers receive the best possible service and help with the smooth running of the shop. This role may be suitable for you if you enjoy working in a team, meeting new people – or just want to gain experience! No specific experience is necessary, just bring a bucketful of enthusiasm along!

You don’t have to commit to large chunks of time either – it may be just one or two days a week, or 2 or 3 mornings or afternoons – every little helps! Just give it a try!

Opening Hours

Bury:   9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. – closed Sunday and Monday

Ramsbottom:  10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – closed Monday

Thank you for your support
