Beverley charity becomes Two-Poundland!
A Beverley charity shop has become Two-Poundland after slashing the price of all its stock in a bid to raise much-needed funds.
There’s certainly plenty of bargains now to be had at the Beverley Community Lift charity shop in Sow Hill Road, as charity CEO Jan Stainforth explained: “By offering donated stock at £2, we hope to encourage more people to come and visit our shop, bag a bargain or two, and also find out about the work that Beverley Community Lift does in, and for, the local community.
“The ‘everything £2’ deal applies to donated stock of clothes, bric-a-brac, household goods, DVDs, and other items. I can reassure shoppers that all the stock is of a very good quality – it’s not stained, threadbare or full of holes! It’s steamed, hung, sized, tagged, and displayed neatly and creatively, producing a pleasant shopping experience for our customers. Stock will be constantly replenished throughout each day, so it’s worthwhile visiting the shop on a regular basis,” she said.
Beverley Community Lift provides community transport to take local elderly and disabled people out and about using its car and minibus service.
“Although our charity has been operating in Beverley and the surrounding areas for over 47 years, as demand for our services is increasing, we need to look at new ways to keep us on the road financially for many more years to come. Our charity shop is one way of generating these much-needed funds,” Jan said.
“I would like to thank our charity shop manager and shop volunteers for all their hard work in bringing this new concept to life. We hope that residents and visitors to Beverley will give us their support.”
There will be an official launch of the new ‘everything £2’ deal in the Beverley Community Lift charity shop from 10am-4pm this Friday (28th July), when local artist and new patron of the charity Shirley Harrison of ‘Shirley and Scruff’s’, will be in attendance between 12 noon and 2pm, and creating some original artwork in situ.
