The Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd (SATCoL) is due to open a charity shop on St Peter’s Hill.
Renovation work has begun at the former premises of greetings card retailer In Touch at 33 St Peter’s Hill, where the new charity shop will open on Thursday, March 12 with an opening ceremony at 10.30am.
The shop will offer a wide range of quality clothing, shoes and household goods at affordable prices and staff are busy preparing stock to ensure that all the best bargains go on sale on opening day.
SATCoL’s Area Manager, Christine Westwood, commented: “We’re delighted to be opening a new shop in Grantham and look forward to welcoming the local community on our opening day next month.
“We’d like to encourage anybody interested in volunteering at the shop to come in on Wednesday, March 11 between 11am and 3pm to register their interest. There are always plenty of jobs that need doing, including steaming and hanging clothes, ticketing and coding and we provide training on all aspects of the work. If you think you can spare any time at all, from a few hours to a few days a week, please do come and see us.”
Profit SATCoL receives through the sale of donated items contributes to The Salvation Army’s work with people who are vulnerable and in need across the UK, including homelessness and addiction services, care for older people, help at emergency incidents, support for adult victims of human trafficking in England and Wales and a Family Tracing Service.
Over the last five years alone SATCoL has donated over £39.5 million to The Salvation Army.
