"Many people come into the store regularly to donate clothing, furniture and other goods.
"It's proved to be a very popular way of enabling people to do their bit for those around the world that need extra help."
She added: "The Ladies Night was a chance for many of our supporters to come together to celebrate both the achievements of Mercy in Action in Peasedown and to see our winter clothing selection."
Mercy in Action was launched in 1995 when Allison and John Todd, of Bath, visited the Philippines and were horrified by the conditions that many of the orphaned children were living in.
Following their visit, they then came back to the UK and started raising funds to change these children's lives.
There are 14 shops in the UK with more planned to open soon.
