A BARRY charity shop reopened after a complete makeover at new premises on the weekend.
Tenovus, Wales’ leading cancer charity, reopened its charity shop on Saturday, at 110 Holton Road, where Clinton Cards was formerly based.
The new shop was officially opened by Barry resident and dedicated Tenovus supporter, Mary Thomas. Mrs Thomas, who has been the chair of the Barry Friends of Tenovus fundraising group for over 40 year, thanked everyone for their hard work in making the shop look so brilliant, as well as the community for their continued support.
The shop took over £2,000 on the first day of opening.
Sue Mayne, Tenovus shop manager, said: “The reopening of the shop on Saturday was the result of months of hard work by both staff and volunteers and we’re all so pleased with the result.
“We’ve had a fantastic response from the community. They’ve been very supportive and said wonderful things about how the shop looks. What we need now is the donations of clothes to keep coming in so our shop stays looking great.”
To donate unwanted clothes, bric-a-brac or books to the Tenovus shop in Barry, simply drop a bag in to the shop on Holton Road.
