RSPCA South Cotswolds Branch charity shop in Wotton-under-Edge celebrating first anniversary
A WOTTON charity shop is celebrating its first successful year in the town.
It’s been a year since former Olympic ski jumper Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards opened the RSPCA South Cotswolds Branch shop in Long Street.
The branch will be celebrating its first anniversary with a party in store this Friday, September 20 and Saturday, September 21 from 9am to 5pm.
A raffle and tombola will be running, with a large hamper prize on offer, as well as lucky dip, sweet guessing games and lots of cake – plus the usual high end clothing, bric-a-brac and games on sale.
"It’s basically to say thank you to the community for their support," explained Karen Egan, branch retail development manager. "Wotton is a wonderful market town and the local people have made us feel very welcome resulting in a very successful first year.
"We pride ourselves in the quality of items displayed in our shops and with the appointment of our new manager Caroline I see our shop in Wotton going from strength to strength."
The RSPCA South Cotswolds Branch is an independent charity which relies on local support to deliver animal welfare.
Mrs Egan said: "Last year we helped to support nearly 1,000 animals in one way or another and hope to increase our service this year."
The shop is always looking for volunteers to help out and for donations of good quality, saleable items.
If you think you can help, please contact Caroline Nolan at the RSPCA Shop at18 Long Street or on 01453 520398.
