Shop, Support, Donate at 1869: Action For Children


Ladies, if you haven’t visited our beautiful 1869 Action for Children store yet, where have you been?

1869 Action for Children is not your average charity shop. Second hand stock isn’t their bag; they’re all about brand new, sample or stock donated directly from big brands. So hidden gems for your wardrobe, not the landfill site!

More on them here.



1869 is largely run and managed by a team of lovely volunteers. We’ve been working with local colleges in Solihull, offering invaluable work experience for students on retail, customer service and event planning courses.

If you or someone close to you are looking for retail work experience, an exciting community opportunity or you’re free to lend a hand, click the button below to complete a simple application form to volunteer.




Got heaps of leftover loved things from wardrobes gone by?

Although all stock in our store is brand new (near perfect, sample or direct from the brands themselves), Action for Children also sell second hand items online , again with all proceeds going to families and children  in need.

The following items will be gratefully accepted in carrier bags/boxes at the 1869 store here at Resorts World, for both men and women. They will then be collected by the Action for Children team for sale on their eBay store.

  • High quality clothing items and footwear from any brand, little to no wear e.g. jumpers, dresses, skirts, trainers, heels etc
    • If donating any underwear or swimwear, these must be unworn items.
  • High quality accessories, with little wear/minor damage e.g. belts, handbags, jewellery
