Sue Ryder opens town shop

A NEW charity shop has opened in Portishead.

Bargain hunters bagged some fantastic finds at the Sue Ryder store in Harbour Road store, close to the town’s library, when it opened on Friday.

North Somerset MP Dr Liam Fox officially opened the store which will be run by manager Emma Mandeville, Sue Ryder staff and a team of volunteers.

The shop is packed with second hand clothes, accessories, music and books as well as a wide range of new goods, including art equipment, guitars and dolls’ houses.

Emma said: “This is a really exciting retail development for Sue Ryder that will raise much-needed money for hospice and neurological care. There is something for everyone and every home and I am sure shoppers in Portishead will be delighted by the exceptional quality, value and wide range of goods we will be selling.”

Money raised from the shop will help Sue Ryder to continue to provide local expert and compassionate care to people living with end-of-life and long-term conditions such as cancer, stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and motor neurone disease.
