A popular charity shop has reopened at a new site in Clitheroe.

Staff at Age UK Lancashire officially opened their doors with the charity’s CEO Stephanie Tufft having the honour of cutting the ribbon.

Customers were invited to see the fantastic items available and enjoy some cake and refreshments to help celebrate the location of the new shop at the top of Castle Street.

The shop stocks a variety of high quality vintage items and has always been hugely popular with the Clitheroe locals. Age UK Lancashire was previously located in Moor Lane and was involved in a fire last year.

Shop manager, Sheila Tierney, said: “We are so pleased to get the new shop open to the public after a lot of hard work over the past few weeks.

“It has been a difficult 18 months for our team here as we have had to deal with a lot of changes and even a fire at our previous location around the corner.

“I’m delighted we have come through it and really proud of our new shop and all the team who helped. We hope this new location will attract more customers through the door and make it easier for people to donate any unwanted items for resale. I’m looking forward to seeing regular and new customers coming into the shop and help them to pick out some bargains.”

The team plan on holding special days to support local events and activities happening in and around the Clitheroe area and are hoping that locals will come and support them. All the money that the shop raises stays in Lancashire and helps the charity to carry out many vital, unfunded services that help and support local older people.
