Chelmsford 4 Good charity shop opened its doors on the 17 July at 22 Market Road as a local charity shop with a difference. The ethos is on raising money for two local charities and also offering a share of the space to other good causes that support Chelmsford community.
‘The shop will raise much needed funds for Chelmsford charities Centre Supporting Voluntary Action and Community Transport but we’ll also share space with other local charities to help them to raise their profile and sell their donated items on a week by week basis.’’ said Lorraine Jarvis, the Centre’s Chief Officer.
Cllr Dick Madden, who is both a City and County Councillor, cut the ribbon to open the shop and said: “Hearing about all of the volunteers, agencies and local businesses who have been involved in setting up this venture, for me, demonstrates true partnership working.”
Donations welcome. Do pop in and find out more or call 01245 351888.
