Cancer wellness support

Reduce, Recycle, Repurpose

Our op shops are the lifeblood of our organisation, collectively generating approximately $2 million annually and providing the majority of the funds to support our vision.

Within our op shops, a genuine circular economy exists to benefit our people, our community and our environment.

We repurpose and keep items out of landfill, provide stunning pieces at an incredibly low cost for our local community, and generate the finances that we need.

Our approach is not just about selling goods but fostering a community of support where everyone benefits – from those seeking affordable items to our local community and the environment we all share.

Charitable Recycling Australia champions the circular economy for a sustainable environment and an equitable society. 

After an audit of Cancer Wellness Support and how we operate our op shops, we are thrilled to be accredited under their Clothing Reuse Export Accreditation Scheme.

By purchasing enduring pieces and fostering their longevity, you too can actively combat the wasteful cycle of fast fashion and steer clear of contributing to landfills.

The indispensable contribution of our op shop volunteers remains the driving force behind our accomplishments. They play a pivotal role in engaging with customers, assisting them with clothing choices, sharing laughter and forging connections.

Our op shops owe their success and impact to the remarkable generosity of the Blue Mountains and Nepean-Hawkesbury regions, where a continuous stream of high-quality donations continually replenishes our shelves.

My dedication is driven by the cause Cancer Wellness Support serves …
subsidised complementary therapy treatments for local people living with cancer and their families.
