Char­ity shop shuts its doors

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

A POYN­TON char­ity shop has shut its doors for the last time.

Stock­port CP So­ci­ety, which sup­ports adults and chil­dren with phys­i­cal and or learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties and autis­tic spec­trum con­di­tions, was forced to close its branch in Poyn­ton.

It says the shops have strug­gled as a re­sult of a decline in dona­tions, the fluc­tu­at­ing rag mar­ket and an in­crease in high street com­pa­nies that pay cus­tomers for un­wanted items.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Sarah Thomas, said: “We would like to thank the ded­i­cated team of staff and vol­un­teers for all their hard work and com­mit­ment over the years and we would also like to thank all the cus­tomers who have do­nated and pur­chased goods from the shops dur­ing this time.

“The funds raised through the shops have sup­ported many of our ser­vices over the years.”
