Today, Friday 12th April, we were delighted to open a brand-new charity shop in Lightwater, Surrey. Based at 39, Guildford Road in the heart of the village, this modern store offers a fresh and welcoming retail environment to browse a huge range of high quality, affordable pre-loved items, from fashion to homeware and much more.

The sunshine appeared as Mayor of Surrey Heath, Pat Tedder cut the ribbon to officially open the store which was soon buzzing with eager customers and donors. The shop was also visited local MP Michael Gove who spoke with staff and volunteers.
