By Jack Troughton An­i­mal char­ity SCAN has opened the doors to its new char­ity shop as it marks five years of run­ning its El Vergel sanc­tu­ary.

Mayor Basili Salort joined man­ager Terri Lewis to cut the rib­bon at the shop in Car­rer Doc­tor Dom­e­n­ach and wel­come guests for a cel­e­bra­tory drink.

The char­ity moved from its for­mer shop in El Vergel af­ter find­ing it was “burst­ing at the seams”.

Terri said there was a 15-strong team run­ning the shop; but new faces would be wel­come. “We are al­ways look­ing for vol­un­teers.”

And she said: “The new shop is very much a dif­fer­ent ket­tle of fish; it’s more of a bou­tique and a new vi­brant place, our vol­un­teers make the shop suc­cess­ful

“I think it’s a very re­laxed place to work and we are very much the pub­lic face of SCAN. This marks a new chap­ter for the shop and for the char­ity.”

Terri said the shop was open Mon­day to Fri­day be­tween 10am and 1pm and do­na­tions were al­ways grate­fully re­ceived.
