Age UK Clitheroe gears up for April reopening and needs your support

A charity shop is pleased to announce its shop in Clitheroe is set to reopen on April 12th following its temporary closure due to the coronavirus restrictions.

Age UK is looking forward to welcoming locals back to the shop, located on Moor Lane, to pick up a bargain from one of the many items available in store, including clothing, accessories, books, toys and homeware.

Safety measures will once again be in place to protect customers, volunteers and staff, such as social distancing and sanitiser stations, and staff and volunteers will have the required safety equipment when interacting with customers.

Age UK shops help raise vital funds for the charity’s work and services supporting older people, which have been a lifeline for older people during lockdown and throughout the coronavirus crisis. Older people are among those hit hardest by the pandemic and Age UK’s services faced unprecedented demand when the crisis began. As the impacts of coronavirus continue, Age UK’s information and advice, and friendship services, will carry on being there to provide essential guidance, support and reassurance for older people.

Diane, manager at the Clitheroe shop, said: “We’re so excited to be able to open our doors again and can’t wait to welcome the local community back! As well as a wide range of bargains, we’ve also have a special offer on end-of-season clothing. All items purchased help raise much-needed funds for Age UK so it can continue supporting people in later life.

"The Age UK Clitheroe shop will be open 9am on Monday to Saturday from April 12th To find out more about how Age UK’s shops, how the charity has been helping older people during the pandemic and how you can help, please visit www.ageuk.org.uk"As the pandemic continues, many older people are increasingly finding the situation tough to bear. Without Age UK, many would be facing these challenging times entirely alone. Age UK’s vital telephone services are a lifeline for those who have no one else to turn to, but the charity needs urgent funds so it can continue to be there for anyone who needs them.
