Charity shop proves a great success
SALISBURY’S newest charity shop has had such a busy first fortnight that it is fast running out of stock to sell.
The Trussell Trust shop in High Street urgently needs more donations of clothes, shoes, bags, gifts, books and toys.
Although Salisbury’s charity shops are flourishing, the Charity Retail Association is calling on more people to support them by donating stock or volunteering.
MPs have been getting behind the Choose Charity Shops campaign and on Friday, Salisbury MP John Glen handed over a sack of stock to Trussell Trust staff.
Operations director David McAuley said: “The Trussell Trust is seeing a huge increase in demand for its services and this shop is providing vital income to help more people in crisis in Salisbury.
“We hope lots more people will come along, have a browse and drop off some donations – it’s a really easy way to make a difference.”
