Work on what will be our new permanent home in Roseberry Place, will be starting soon and if all goes to plan we hope it should be ready for us to move into by spring next year. This will represent a new chapter for the charity and will give us invaluable stability for the future, not to mention a wonderful riverside location.
Our shop in Southgate Street, that has been secured for the future on a peppercorn rent, has been a great success since it was opened by Ken Loach, in September 2014. Our shop manager Morgan, has done an exceptional job of creating a beautiful and stylish shop that has already become well known to the residents of Bath. Morgan’s tireless efforts and boundless enthusiasm have created a reel buzz about the shop and importantly this has been reflected in the takings.
The success of the shop has meant we have been able to employ two part-time delivery drivers, Mark and Alistair are doing a great job delivering and collecting from our donors and customers which allows Morgan to focus on what he does best running the wonderful shop he has created for us. Like all charities, generating income is always a difficulty, so revenue from our shop is vital to us to ensure we are able to continue to help and support some of the most vulnerable and disadvantage people in our community. So if you have bought something from our shop, we would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of our charity and our clients.
