About Us

A Little About Rummage Rescuers

Established in 2015, the first Rummage Rescuers shop addressed local needs within the bustling and thriving community of Mill Hill.

Thanks to the kindness of generous donators & funding, we have also been able to open a preloved Book Store and Flower Shop in the Northgate area of Blackburn Town Centre along with warehouses in the Whalley Banks area of Blackburn which are able to take enquiries about collections & deliveries.

Rummage Rescuers also reach the wider Blackburn with Darwen communities with van deliveries, helping many people in crisis and those on a tight budget to find what they need. Volunteers can also gain on the job training and experience.

All shops & warehouses are open to the public for shoppers to browse and buy.

Fundraising & Business Support.

Rummage Rescuers regularly run fundraising campaigns & events to raise money for good causes and projects that will benefit our community.

The majority of our funding comes from our amazing customers, regular donators, as well as local businesses.

We are very grateful for the National Lottery Community Fund for providing funding to help hundreds of people over the years.

Thank you! Your time, donations and money really do go a long way!

Giving Items a Second Chance.

We are a nation of throwing away. Millions of reusable clothes, shoes & household items are sent to landfill every year. At Rummage Rescuers, we want to help combat this issue by giving all our items of stock a second chance, passing them on to somebody who can have further use.

Our community shops, warehouse and online shop are full of items waiting to be rescued. Check them out!
