CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading children and young people’s cancer charity, has celebrated the re-opening of its Gloucester charity shop.
The shop has relocated to fantastic new premises on Clarence Street from its previous location on Station Road, maintaining its position in Gloucester’s central shopping area.
Staff and volunteers from the charity celebrated the move at an opening ceremony on Thursday 27 March, where they were joined by members of the public to enjoy refreshments and mark the occasion with a ribbon cutting.
Shoppers were then able to enjoy the spacious new premises as they browsed the shop’s collection of quality second-hand goods.
Caroline Jenkins, Retail Area Manager for CLIC Sargent, said: “The re-opening of CLIC Sargent’s Gloucester charity shop is great news for the charity and shoppers alike.
“The shop has gone from strength to strength thanks to the support of local people, who have kindly donated their goods and given us their custom. I’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who has supported the shop over the years; I’m thrilled to celebrate its re-opening with guests from CLIC Sargent and the public.”
CLIC Sargent has 27 charity shops which raise funds to provide practical, emotional and financial support for children and young people with cancer, and their families.
