A temporary pop-up charity shop opened in Nailsea on Friday.

The Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) shop in Crown Glass Shopping Centre is currently closed for refurbishment, which the charity promises will result in it being ‘bigger and better’ for shoppers and volunteers.

During the works, the charity has opened a pop-up shop at the old ‘The Blue Room’ site in Crown Glass Shopping Centre.

Shoppers can continue to donate items at the temporary shop or at the ‘drop off and donate’ point at the back of the main shop, which has easy access to the car park.

CHSW media officer, Kate Green said: “Due to the continued success of the shop, the charity is making improvements which will benefit the children and families supported by CHSW’s hospice, Charlton Farm in Wraxall.”

Since opening in 2007 the shop has raised more than £260,000 for the charity, which supports children with life-limiting conditions.
