Attention all bargain hunters! Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, is celebrating the grand opening of its newest charity shop on Friday 19th February at 10.30am and you’re all invited to join in the celebrations.

 

The brand new addition to the Dogs Trust charity shop family will be celebrating its grand opening with a little help from some VIPs (very important pooches) from the nearby Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Centre. Savvy shoppers and their pooches will be able to get first pick of the stylish goods on offer and wag a bargain thanks to the generous donations the shop has received so far.

 

Katy Warren, Dogs Trust Charity Shop Retail Area Manager, said:

 

“We’re very excited to be setting up a Dogs Trust shop here in Newbury. We have already received some very generous donations from members of the public but would be grateful for any extra items that can be spared. We’ll be stocking everything and anything – from books and clothes to ornaments and household items so come on down and see if you can bag a bargain!

 

Katy adds,

 

“Volunteers are vital to the smooth running of Dogs Trust charity shops. From welcoming customers to answering queries, sorting donations to restocking shelves, there is always something that needs an extra pair of hands - so if you fancy getting involved and becoming part of our team, please get in touch”

 

If you have any items you would like to donate to the shop please drop them into Dogs Trust Newbury charity shop, 47 Northbrook Street, Newbury, RG14 1DT. Your generosity can now go one step further as there is now the option to claim Gift Aid on any items donated to the shop, just ask any member of the team to find out how you can do this.
