Charity work

Here at The Trop Shop we have carried out a variety of fund raising activities for charity. We competed in tough Mudder 2015, raising over £3000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Our annual raffle raises around £2000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Cancer Research. 
We have also taken part in a leg waxing session for The Jordan Wright Trust Charity. We encourage the Poppy Appeal and support Strongbones Children's Charitable Trust.
We are proud supporters of two local football teams, Grays Athletic Football Club and The Lakeside Hammers. We are also a sponsor for the Essex Wildlife Trust.
