Two months ago when we opened we didn't have an item to sell. The response to this has been overwhelming, thank you.
At Oasis, our charity shop is aimed at giving people high quality clothing and other household items for a bargain price.
Two months ago, when we opened the doors for the start of the new year at Oasis, the shop was barren, we didn't have a single item to sell.
As we were running up to the opening of the centre, we ran an appeal to local business, churches and other services and the response we have had has been overwhelming. Since the start of the year, every rail has been full of clothes to sell and our displays are packed with amazing products to buy and streams of customers are walking away chuffed with their purchases.
All of this has resulted in revenues from the shop increasing because of all the amazing products to buy at astonishingly low prices. All of the proceeds from the shop go straight back into the centre helping fund the upkeep of the day to day running of Oasis including the free cafe.
The charity shop s a pivotal offering at the centre ad we couldn't do this without so many people's generosity in donating items to the shop. Over the past two months, we have seen so many people leaving the shop beaming because they have been able to afford items that otherwise they would not have been able to afford.
To everyone who has donated, thank you so much. It really does make a huge difference to us.
