Pop-up for charity

It’s never a bad time to do something good, so why not do it whilst you’re out picking out your Christmas gifts? We have put together a list of five cool pop-up shops that benefit charities. From feminist tees to celebrity designed reusable coffee cups, you’ll want to catch them before they’re gone!

  1. Tits London

Not only is this store celebrating the work of female artists, but it’s raising money for breast cancer awareness by donating 10% of all proceeds to Coppafeel. With cute graphic tees, fun jewellery, quirky tote bags and more, it’s the perfect place to get those secret Santa gifts.

Where? The Artworks, Elephant & Castle

When?  Until 13 December

  1. Pass On Plastic

Celebrities including Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Will Poulter, have designed reusable goods for the shop raising awareness of our polluted oceans. As part of the collaboration between Project 0 and Sky Ocean Rescue, all proceeds are going to WWF and Project 0.

Where? 20 Beak Street, Carnaby

When? Until 6 January

  1. Choose Love

Set up by the Help Refugees charity, this pop-up allows you to purchase essential items for refugees so that “a similar item” can go to them. It’s a great way to make a difference to someone’s life.

This is the place to get your hands on the newly remastered music of Kate Bush in CD and vinyl format. You will also be able to purchase her re-released How To Be Invisible lyric book along with other exclusive items. All profits will go to Crisis, an organisation that helps the homeless.
