The May Court Nearly New Shop (located in the heart of delightful Kerr Village) raises a large portion of the funds our club donates to community services. It is a popular consignment store offering gently used, in style and in season women’s and men’s clothing. You will also find accessories, jewellery and housewares for sale. Our shop is run and staffed entirely by volunteers who give their time and talents to support the club. All net profits go directly to support our local programs and Halton charities.
