In November 2004 the charity campaign received a huge boost when Southampton Mayor Dennis Harryman formally opened the trust’s first charity shop in Church Street, Shirley, Southampton.

The charity shop carries a huge range of good quality items from books to videos, music to clothes. A great selection and amazing prices. In our slideshow is a small selection of the items we have in stock with many, many more items available in the shop. Pop in and pick up a bargain! All proceeds go direct to the Charity.

Charity Shop Manager: I’ve been managing The Wayne Howard Trust Charity Shop now for about 6years. Previously I worked for 6 years at a large bank & before that I jointly owned & ran a business selling corporate & promotional items. Initially, I volunteered in the shop from its inception on saturdays, managing the bookshop/video room. I wanted a change of career direction with new challenges & when the manager’s position became vacant I saw it as great opportunity for someone & that someone was me! Since joining the Trust as manager of the shop, I have learned more about the retail environment & am enjoying the challenge of managing a team of volunteers in a more customer facing role. I really love my job! Every day is different & I never get that “sunday night/monday morning” feeling. I am part of the Fundraising Development Group & get involved with external fundraising events, manage the facebook pages for the Trust & Charity shop & am currently developing the Ebay business for the shop. With a great team of volunteers by my side. My job has more meaning now & the fact I’m Wayne’s sister & therefore have a personal connection to the charity gives my job added value & I know I am making a difference.

    Trethowans Sponsors Local Charity Evening

    14 February 2017

    James Gleisner, Paralegal in the Personal Injury team in Southampton, sits as a Trustee on the Board of the Wayne Howard Trust, a brain injury charity.

    On Saturday 21 January 2017, the Wayne Howard Trust held a charity salsa evening at the Solent University Sports facility on Wide Lane.  As the trust is one of the Mayor of Southampton’s charities of the year for 2016-2017, she was also in attendance at the evening. Trethowans donated the security cost for the evening (the only overhead of the event which had not been donated), meaning that 100% of the money raised went to the charity, as well as also donating a bottle of bubbly for the raffle. James comments, “The donation made for the cost of the security, as well as all the facilities and entertainment, was fantastic and meant that all funds raised could be put to good use. The Wayne Howard Trust is a fantastic local charity that are trying to work towards a goal of ensuring that any person that has suffered a brain injury gets the right follow up care to ensure that they can still thrive and live life to their full potential”.
