The Wee Charity Shop

The Wee Shop is Cowal Kirk’s Charity Shop located in the centre of Dunoon

The Wee Charity Shop

Cowal Kirk has its very own Wee Shop. A charity shop that has raised exceptional sums of money for the benefit of church funds over recent years. The shop is manned entirely by volunteers working free of charge and is ably managed by Lawther Murchison, again without salary or wage.

Over five years ago, inspired by the success Dick Walsh had enjoyed with opening a MOD Charity shop., Lawther launched the Church’s charity shop.  Initially located within the old Queens Hall, the shop moved up the hill to the corner of Moir Street before arriving at its current resting place at 89 Argyll Street.

Lawther, assisted by her team of volunteers,  has worked incredibly hard over the years to build the business to the present success story.

The shop sells quality second-hand items to the people of Dunoon and their visitors and is currently bursting with stock (though more is always welcome).  The range of stock is immense from knitting needles to small items of furniture and includes china, jewellery, crystal, paintings, photos, books, bedding, fabrics, wool and much much more.  Generous parishioners have contributed some high quality items. Lawther is grateful for the many donations from the whole community which keep the shop stocked.

Lawther and her helpers also find time to provide items and support for the Cowal Kirk Starter Packs.  They also organise fundraising for local charities with their “100 squares”.  Every year the shop supports the Poppy Appeal.
If you have items you think may sell on the second-hand market give Lawther a ring on 07747 735987 or leave her a message on the wee shop’s FaceBook page. Whilst Lawther has an able collection of 14 volunteers, more are always needed. If you can spare even an hour or two please call her.

The shop aims to be open six days a week from approximately 10 am to 4 pm but currently closes on a Monday.
