The Salvation Army opened its latest charity shop in the West Midlands town of Shirley this week. The doors officially opened yesterday (Thursday 28 July) at 10.30am at 205 Stratford Road.

Located in the heart of Shirley, the shop, led by manager Karen Harding, will play a vital role in raising money for The Salvation Army to help vulnerable people in communities across the UK.

Area manager Christine Westwood commented: “Shoppers were in for a real treat on Thursday. We had some really stunning items of clothing donated, including some great wedding hats and statement handbags, as well as some brand new dresses that still have the tags on! Karen and her team did a brilliant job in getting the shop floor ready, it looked fantastic.

“We’re especially on the lookout for some passionate volunteers to join the team. I’d like to encourage anybody who’s interested to pop in and have a chat about what’s involved. We rely on the generosity of our volunteers – if you think you can spare any time at all, from a few hours to a few days a week, you will be helping to make a huge difference.”
