Our charity shops are reopening
Published on 25 June 2020 02:36 PM
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin are reopening their charity furniture shops. The shop in Wellington will open its doors on Monday 29 June and the Oswestry shop on Monday 13 July.
We’re following Government guidelines, with staff and volunteers working hard behind the scenes to ensure our shops are safe to reopen for customers.
Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin need to raise funds via our shops to provide vital services to older people across the county. With the reopening of the furniture shops in the coming weeks, we’re inviting customers to pop in for a browse to see the variety of items on sale where you can pick up a bargain.
Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: ‘We have introduced new safety measures following Government guidance and advice from the Charity Retail Association to ensure our shops are a safe environment for staff, volunteers and customers. We have lost significant income over the past three months to fund the services we provide local older people, so we are really looking forward to getting our shops up and running again and welcoming everyone back.’
If you would like further information, please call Paula Hinks on 01952 872 020 for the Wellington shop or Rose Morris on 01691 238 020 for the Oswestry shop.
Items of furniture will also be available for sale on Facebook Marketplace (to collect from the Wellington shop) on facebook.com/ageukstwwellingtonshop
