The Warkworth Community Shop, in the Bayleys Building, has distributed more than $30,000 since opening 10 months ago.
In the latest round of donations, $12,000 was given to the Friends of Mahu (Mahurangi College PTA), Warkworth Primary School PTA, Ahuroa School, Mahurangi Volunteer Fire Service and Warkworth Scouts.
The funds were raised from the community shop’s sole outlet at 41 Queen Street.
The shop is staffed by volunteers, who have been involved in selling everything from duck eggs to Doc Martins.
An organiser, John McEwing, says donations of good quality furniture, clothing, bric-a-brac, household goods and so on are much appreciated.
Goods can be left at the shop during business hours, or a collection can be arranged by calling 425 8844.
