When we first began, we had to raise funds to help people and we did this by carrying out fundraising collections in shopping centres and supermarkets. After years of doing this, my colleague and Trustee of the charity Roger Wall suggested opening a charity shop and so the first shop was opened in Thornbury, it was a small shop, but a good way to see how things went. The shop was a success and so when a shop became available in St Mary Street in Thornbury. Because the Hard work that Roger, Christine and the volunteers had done, we opened a second shop just one shop up from the existing one and so we opened the shop to sell mainly used furniture, pictures, ornaments, music centres, and other electrical goods.

Both shops have run very well, but because it has become difficult to get volunteers we decided to close the lower shop and have now completely revamped, taken down the back wall to extend the top shop and have completed re-decorated and fitted new carpet. We have new display shelves, lighting and shop signage.  We recently reopened shop and comments from customer have been excellent.

We sell, clothes, electrical goods, ornaments, furniture, wheelchairs, walking frames and useful things for the home.

We are in urgent need of more clothes especially ladies sizes 8 to 16 please. Come into the shop or call us, Thank you very much🙂

 

Please come and see us and sure you will be impressed. If you would like to donated any of the above things for us to sell, please call on 01454 418144 and we can collect larger items. You can also contact Roger on 07931579987

People dancing at our Rock & Roll themed event for MS

Christine Wall, Shop Manager and Trustee, along with some of our fantastic volunteers, organised another brilliant summer event, a 50's/60's Rock & Roll event, which took place outside our two charity shops.  There was a Rock an Roll band and people danced, our volunteers dressed up in the period clothes and they looked great. We had a popcorn machine and a kids merry-go-round, as well as a raffle and lucky dip. It was altogether a sucessful event and it raised funds for our charity, which of course helps people with MS by offering to do Gardening, Decoration and other DIY type jobs. We alse make regulare donations to the  BrAMS Centre based in the Brain Cente at Southmead Hospital.

Thank you and well done to Christine and everyone who made the event a great sucess

    If you or someone you know has MS and can no longer carryout jobs and maybe can’t afford to pay a company for jobs which need doing around the home and garden, please call us for an application form, we will then arrange for someone to look a the needed job and we will hopefully be able to help.
