Staff and volunteers at the CLIC Sargent charity shop, in St Thomas Shopping Centre, Cowick Street, will be holding a party to celebrate on Monday January 27.
CLIC Sargent Head of Trading, Jeremy Lune, said: “We’re really excited to be celebrating the 25th anniversary of our Exeter shop.
We’re so grateful to all the CLIC Sargent supporters who have donated items or bought from the shop over the years. We hope the next 25 years will be just as successful!
“Exeter was where we opened CLIC Sargent’s first ever charity shop so this is where it all began. We now have a chain of 27 shops, all raising funds to support children and young people with cancer.”
Volunteer Wyn Wright has been giving up her time to work in the shop since it opened in 1989. She still volunteers at the shop and is looking forward to the anniversary celebrations.
Wyn said: “I can’t believe it’s a quarter of a century since the shop opened. I love volunteering here.
“CLIC Sargent is a fantastic charity and the work they do supporting children and young people with cancer is incredible.”
CLIC Sargent supporters, past and present volunteers and members of the public will be joining in the party, which will run from 1-3pm.
The Lord Mayor of Exeter Rachel Lyons will also be attending.
