This September WRAS opened their very first charity shop. An idea that has been around for a while, but the time and funds have been limited. At the start of the year WRAS rescuer, surveyor and a charity retail manager John Masters, sat down with our manager Chris and started to hatch a plan. After drafting ideas and a lot of shop searching, they came across 192 Terminus Road in Eastbourne's town centre. John using is vast experience negotiated a very good deal on the lease and at the start of August we were given the keys.Chris advertised for managers and John Racher and Lois Attwater were chosen to take on the project. They were given an empty shell make their own. 5 weeks later and a lot of hard work by all, the shop has opened its doors. We are ironing out a few creases and will have a grand opening in the next couple of weeks. A lot of work has gone into the shop by a lot of people to make this a reality. Special thanks to Laura Carrick, John Debop, Tim the builder, Tectonic electrical, Signtech, John Masters and of course John and Lois. Our grand opening should be announced soon, in the mean time please pop down and have a nose, we are open 9am until 5.30pm Monday-Saturday. if you would like to donate stock please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
