Our wonderful charity shop in Crook has now closed because of Coronavirus. Nine years ago the shop was passed to us from a local Chernobyl charity and Gerald Hirst and a brilliant team of volunteers have continued to run it ever since. The shop is always buzzing with visitors and people dropping off donations and has been a focal point for the local community, as well as a great fundraiser for the charity. All its supporters will look forward to it re-opening later in the year.
We also have a dedicated team of volunteers in Staffordshire who run our market stall in Stoke, co-ordinated by Julie Gater, who have also had to close.
