Going for Bust is a Breast Cancer Charity, dedicated to raising funds through its Charity Shops, for local Hospitals and Support groups, in the fight to combat Breast Cancer in the East Dorset and West Hampshire areas. We believe that we are the region's first and only Breast Cancer Charity Shop.
The charity was set up by local people, who have been directly affected by Breast Cancer, who felt that Charity Shops offered the best opportunity to provide both sustained and substantial support for people who live in the area as there was a clear shortfall from funds supplied by the NHS.
The name 'Going for Bust' is intended to be both uplifting and forward thinking, whilst generating a positive message, which is hopefully reflected by the attitude of the staff and volunteers in the shops, many of whom have been directly affected by Breast Cancer themselves.

Since its inception at the beginning of 2013, with the opening of the first ever Charity Shop (located in West Moors) committed to solely targeting Breast Cancer, we have been able to open a further twelve shops due to its success. These are located in Ashley Cross, Broadstone, Christchurch, Ferndown, Lymington, Lyndhurst, Poole, Ringwood, Swanage, Westbourne, Wimborne and Verwood.
As well as our charity shops, we also have an admin and support centre, now open in the centre of Wimborne. We are offering a range of services there, including a wig fitting and supply service for those suffering hair loss. Visit the link at the top of the page for more information.
All of our shops need good quality items such as clothing, furniture, fashion accessories and Bric-a-Brac to help generate income.
Please visit our Support Us page for more information on what donations our shops are in need of and the Donate page to learn where the charitable funds are going to good use, as well as how you can help Going for Bust with your generosity.
