On 15 November last year Devon Air Ambulance Trust opened the doors to its charity shop in Totnes for the first time. One year on the shop is growing from strength to strength.
Kirsty Whitaker, Manager of the shop said “We have been made very welcome in Totnes and are delighted to be part of the community.”
Assistant Manager Sam Reader added “We’re the victims of our success because we are really in need of more stock to sell. So we’d love if for a birthday present everyone would consider having a turn out or refreshing wardrobes and donating those unwanted items to us. Our window mannequins are struggling to find something to wear, so it’s quite apt they are almost in their birthday suits!”
If you can help with stock please drop in your donated goods to the shop at 10 Fore Street, Totnes.
You will also find the shop open every third Sunday of the month to coincide with the Food & Craft Market.
