Local charity furniture shops to reopen


Age UK Shropshire Telford and Wrekin will be reopening their charity furniture shop opposite Red Square in Oswestry on Monday 13 July.

The local charity runs two furniture shops, one in Oswestry the other in Wellington, staff and volunteers are working hard behind the scenes to ensure their shops are safe to reopen for customers.

Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin needs to raise funds via their furniture shop to provide vital services to older people in and around Oswestry. The local charity is inviting customers to pop in for a browse to see the variety of items on sale where you can pick up a bargain.

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: “We have introduced new safety measures following Government guidance and advice from the Charity Retail Association to ensure our shops are a safe environment for staff, volunteers and customers. We have lost significant income over the past four months to fund the services we offer to local older people, so we are really looking forward to getting our shops up and running again and welcoming everyone back”.
