The Cathie Stankevitch Foundation operates 2 high street Charity shops in Albert Square, Widnes.


ReSport is a sports shop which sells new, pre-owned, end-of-line and seconds stock at clearance prices.

This shop is run solely by volunteers and in partnership with New Balance.

Selling both sportswear and sports equipment, the shop provides high quality goods at prices that local people can afford, and the profits from this shop goes directly back into the community via our projects.

We are always looking for donations of pre-owned sportswear and sports equipment which is in great condition.

Widnes Emporium

Widnes Emporium is a quirky little shop which sells a variety of household goods and general bric-a-brac.

Described by customers as an Aladdin’s Cave, we have vintage and retro items available as well as such things as ornaments, vases, pictures, and other homewares.

If you have an eye for the unique, you may well find some bargains, and everything is priced to sell, and bartering is welcomed.

Funds raised from this shop enable us to operate on a day-to-day basis and support our house clearance operations as well as our abilities to provide free furniture to local people and families.
