The local charity Shop
Viva opened its first charity shop in 2006 in a former Methodist Chapel on Churchgate Street in the heart of Soham. In 2019 Viva moved to a bigger retail space across the road at 14 Churchgate Street where the accompanying courtyard provides a friendly café and meeting place. The shop continues to support Viva activities and the wider community.
The shop sells a broad range of excellent quality but reasonably priced used and new men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, shoes and accessories; toys and baby equipment; books for all ages and homeware. We also have a designer rail for the real fashionistas!
The shop is almost exclusively manned by a fantastic team of more than 30 volunteers and 100% of the shop’s profits are used to fund the work of Viva Arts and Community Group in Soham and the surrounding area.
The Viva Shop is one of the few locally-based charity shops in East Cambridgeshire. This means your donations will help fund arts and community projects in this region.
