It’s been a year like no other for our amazing charity shop team. Shop Manager Anne brings us all up to date.
Firstly I would like to introduce you to our newest member of staff… Cathie! Cathie looks after the shop every Friday and has been with us as a paid member of staff since May 2021
“I started as a Volunteer around 4 yrs ago and have always loved it.” Says Cathie. “When the opportunity came up as a Shop Assistant for one day a week, I thought it would be perfect for me. I had an interview and luckily I got the job and I have to say I love it! I love the people, I love what I do and the reason I do it. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to work for an amazing charity.”
As the world opens up again, customer, staff and volunteer safety is still our top priority. So we are still sticking with some ‘covid’ rules. The Staff are still wearing masks and we have sanitiser stations that will not be moving anywhere for a while.
However we have now re-opened our changing room (with regular sanitizing after each customer) and we will be selling more children’s toys again as well as small items of baby equipment. So you can enjoy the full shopping experience for the whole family. (Sadly playing in the children’s area is still not permitted).
There are some excellent deals on in the Shop at the moment:
- 2 dresses for £8
- 2 tops for £5 (mix and match men’s/lady’s)
- B.O.G.O.F on children’s clothing
- 3 x DVD’s for £1
We also have a raffle with an amazing basket of prizes including incense and scented oils. This is being drawn 5th August, £1 per ticket or a free entry if you spend over £10.
If you are having a clearout and would like to donate your items to us we are currently accepting donations on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9am until we are full. Visit our dedicated website page for a full list of what we can and cannot accept. We have been very fortunate to receive lots of wonderful donations. Thank you to our regular Donors!
We have a great team of volunteers keeping the shop running and if you would like to join them pop in to the shop and pick up a form.
We look forward to seeing you in store soon.
Anne and the team
