YATE’S Cancer Research UK shop will be closing for a week at the end of this month.
The charity shop, on South Walk in Yate Shopping Centre will close for a refurbishment on Friday, February 28.
The shop is being refitted and will reopen on Monday, March 10 (9am). Thornbury and Yate MP Steve Webb will officially reopen the new shop which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.
In October, the shop marked a quarter of a century in Yate after opening under the name Imperial Cancer in 1998. The charity merged with Cancer Champion to become Cancer Research UK and has raised £2.4million in its history.
