Happy 1st Birthday
July was the month our Peterlee Charity Shop turned one. They celebrated their first birthday by holding a crazy hour where all stock was half price.
The Peterlee shop, located in Castle Dene, is run by a team of Volunteers helping out with everything from unpacking donations, steaming clothes, sorting through bric-a-brac, serving customers, stocking the windows.
The team is supported by Shop Manager Janet Kelly who has this to say,
“It has been a phenomenal year and all of the Volunteers who have worked so hard to keep the shop open are chuffed to bits with helping raising £85,000 this year. We couldn’t do any of it without the donations of stock so please keep them coming in.”
There are lots of ways to get involved with the charity shops, if anyone is interested in giving any time then please contact Senior Manager Retail Karen Witherley on 07983 974 789.
