When our online shopping site launched last October, the country was about to enter the latest lockdown and a Government instruction for non-essential shops to close was announced.

We approached our existing supporters to share the news of our shop and many customers who were unable to visit their traditional charity shops happily switched to browsing and buying online to continue to support the charity. Since then our range of items available was has increased steadily.

Over the months that followed the Shopdaat website has been regularly stocked with unique, one-off items that have been snapped up by savvy shoppers who have found something special they didn’t know they needed.

Visitors to our online shop will see there is more than just clothing for sale; we also stock a range of curated accessories and footwear as well as other collections including vintage items, collectibles and books. The most recent addition to the online range is a beautiful selection of jewellery.

The charity has been affected by a shortfall of over £2 million in fundraising income in 2020, a vast sum to lose for a lifesaving service that provides for communities in Devon and beyond.

Caroline Creer, Income Generation Director at DAA, is keen for everyone to spread the word about the online shop:

Our online shop has proved to be a really important and necessary addition to the charity and one that we are keen for everyone to shout about. We’d love more customers to pay us a visit and browse over 2000 items that have kindly been donated to us. You won’t be disappointed as you can expect every item to be the same excellent condition as you would expect from our Devon Air Ambulance shops.

It’s clear that the income from our online shop is important to bolstering much-needed funds for the charity, and until we can visit one of the our charity shops located throughout Devon once again, shopping online offers a pleasant opportunity to shop local while offering a sustainable alternative to the high street and supporting a medical service that is vital to hundreds of patients every year.
