We will be opening up all of our 6 charity shops on 1st July 2020, in the meantime we would like to ask the public to drop off any donations they may have from clearing out their homes during the lock down. We have set up a room for donations at our Doncaster Church in Lakeside where we can store them and transfer to each shop when they re-open. We would love it if our local radio station could give a shout out to all listeners to drop off any donations between Monday - Friday 9am - 3pm for the next 2 -3 weeks.
