Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

The Can­cer Re­search UK shop in Cold­har­bour Lane has been closed since Mon­day and will wel­come cus­tomers again on Satur­day, April 18, from 11am.

The store’s new lay­out will pro­vide space for more stock and bet­ter chang­ing rooms, while new com­mu­nity boards will dis­play can­cer aware­ness leaflets.

Shop manager Sue Howard said: “We can’t wait to un­veil our beau­ti­ful new-look shop and look for­ward to wel­com­ing cus­tomers old and new through the doors.

“We hope the peo­ple of Hayes will con­tinue to sup­port the shop as they have done so fan­tas­ti­cally in the past.”

Ms Howard ap­pealed for cus­tomers to do­nate cloth­ing and home­ware items once the shop reopens.

She added: “We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to all the won­der­ful peo­ple who sup­port Can­cer Re­search UK by shop­ping with us, mak­ing a do­na­tion or gen­er­ously of­fer­ing their time as vol­un­teers.”

The shop has been trad­ing for more than 30 years and has raised up­wards of £2.9mil­lion in that time.

The re­fur­bish­ment forms part of a na­tion­wide pro­gramme to up­grade the char­ity’s 500-plus shops across the UK. PAR­ENTS are be­ing of­fered safety ad­vice about us­ing car seats for chil­dren and ba­bies.
