Thank you Stephen Lloyd for opening our brand new charity shop with Trevor Weeks on Saturday morning. The ribbon has now been cut and the shop is officially open. Thank to everyone that came along and shared cake and nibbles with us and picked up a bargain. Thank you to everyone who baked some fantastic cakes and brought in drinks and bits, the cheese straws were amazing!
It has been a long process to get the shop to where it is and there needs to be a few thank yous, firstly to Chris Riddington for co-ordinating the set up with the help of John Masters sharing his advice and knowledge. We need to thank Tim, Raynor WRAS's builder who has put most of the shop together. WRAS volunteers Laura Carrick, John Debop and Trustee Brian Russell for all of their time and skills putting together equipment, tidying, sorting and more. Thank you to SignTek and Tectonic for all of there help in getting the shop looking bright and welcoming.
Well done to Shop Managers Lois Attwater and John Racher and all of the volunteers at the shop for making this project a reality and continue to push it forward and make it a success.
We hope that this shop is going to help us to continue to do the life saving work we do for the wildlife of East Sussex. Each item that sells will help to help us continue our work long into the future, so please do pop in say hello the team, buys some bits and even watch some of our WRAS rescues in our educational area.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
