Antiques, high-quality collectables and secondhand clothing, books, art, ceramics, and a little bit of everything else -- with ALL profits going to local good causes on the Isle of Bute (~£130,000 as of 30 April 2017). Help us to support our community, by shopping or donating. TO REQUEST FUNDS, DOWNLOAD OUR APPLICATION FORM HERE.
Thanks to everyone who chose to support For Bute through the Coop's Local Community Fund. Because of this great scheme, we raised over £7000 for the benefit of Bute initiatives, including the recent ambulance shelter. The shelter allows privacy for patients being transported by ferry from the island.
We are the only Bute-based charity shop that can say all of the following:
We are a registered charity -- our accounts are scrutinised by the Scottish Government and are accessible to the public.
100% -- every penny -- of our profits go to good causes on Bute.
None of our staff receive salaries or other remuneration or benefit in any way from For Bute.
We take your donations and turn them into funds to support local good causes. If you have an idea for a good use of For Bute funds, please drop by the shop 47 Victoria Street, or contact us via our Facebook page or by email at email@example.com

When you donate to For Bute or shop at For Bute, you know that the benefit stays on the Isle of Bute. Because we keep our costs to a minimum, depend on volunteers and pay no salaries, and have no assets such as a vehicle, we are able to maximise the value of donations, and because we are a local charity, all profits stay here, on Bute.
