After ten years since the Workaid Shop opened we’re expanding, upgrading and looking forward to re-opening on Thursday, 20th February with a newly refurbished shop interior!

Due to the amazing support from our many regular and weekly new shoppers, we’ve made the decision to enlarge and expand the premises to allow us to display a wider selection of tools, gardening equipment and haberdashery, continuing the fantastic work of our “Charity Shop with a Difference”!

The last day of opening, at the end of the January Sale, was Saturday, 1st February. Until re-opening there’ll be a lot of work developing a new interior with shelving kindly donated by Waitrose Ltd.  We are very grateful for their support and generosity in making such a huge difference in enabling us to continue our work.  It wouldn’t have been possible without Waitrose’s help.

The shop will be expanded backwards into the former stockroom, almost doubling the existing sales area.

Regular updates will be posted on social media, so do keep an eye out to see the progress.
