Can you help charity Za?
ORGANISERS of a Portishead-based charity are looking for a potential retailer to take over their shop lease off after being let down in the 11th hour.
Za is a youth in action charity which is helping to sustain a generation of vulnerable and orphaned children in South Africa.
Its founder,Jayne Morris-Thurgood, formerly ran the not-for-profit shop Bella Natura in High Street to support the project.
However, with the expansion of the charitable work undertaken and the time constraints following the formal registration of the charity, the decision was made to close Bella Natura.
After several months of negotiations with a company who were keen to have the lease re-assigned to them, they pulled out at the last minute leaving the charity high and dry.
