Staff did a double take when a kind-hearted supporter brought in a sword to their charity shop.
After a bit of research, shop manager Koru Moon Brownsword, discovered that it was a replica sword from Dungeons and Dragons.
The discarded sword was donated to the Shaw Trust's charity shop in Glastonbury, after being left behind at a party.
Koru said: "The people of Glastonbury are very generous with their donations, and we have a number of regular customers. We were really excited to be donated such a remarkable item."
John Canessa, Shaw Trust retail director, said: "We were all very surprised to receive such an unusual donation. Donations are really important source of income, enabling us to continue our work in Somerset and around the country. Shaw Trust works throughout the UK supporting around 70,000 disabled and disadvantaged people to find work and live more independently every year."
The sword will now be sold through an authorised dealer.
