Fed up with staring at your clutter in your over filled cupboards and fancy a pre-spring clear out? Want to help raise funds for the JAAR? We need your help; we are looking for products to stock our pop-up charity shop at Reg’s Garden on the 27-28 March.

We welcome anything and everything and are happy to come collect from you. Please get in touch and thanks for supporting JAAR.  Email fundraising@jaar.je or call 01534 482801.

All proceeds raised from the pop up charity shop will go towards supporting and healing Jersey’s survivors of sexual assault. 2020 was a challenging year for everyone. JAAR had to cancel three fundraising events so we are hoping by providing a pop up charity shop will give us a chance to raise the funds we need to continue to provide support and help heal Jersey’s survivors of sexual assault.

JAAR is the only on island charity providing one to one counselling to the survivors of sexual assault and rape. JAAR is working to prevent the incidence of rape and sexual assault in Jersey by raising awareness, dispelling the myths surrounding rape and promoting progressive thinking towards survivors of rape and sexual assault.
