Help Save Yorkshire Lives at New Knaresborough Charity Shop

15 October 2019

Volunteers are being asked to help save Yorkshire lives by raising important funds at Knaresborough’s newest charity shop.

The Yorkshire Cancer Research shop is expected to open on Market Place before Christmas, and the charity is appealing for volunteers to donate their time to help make it a success. 

The shop is the first to be opened by the charity in more than 30 years. It will occupy the former premises of BEK’S Electrical, and sell ladies’, men’s and children’s clothing, books, toys, ornaments, kitchenware, DVDs, music, computer games, furnishings and bric-a-brac.

Money raised will help the charity take action to prevent cancer and improve the likelihood of survival across Yorkshire.

Dr Kathryn Scott, Chief Executive at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “We’re incredibly pleased to be opening our brand new charity shop in the beautiful market town of Knaresborough. We’re lucky to have a huge amount of support from local people and we’re excited to become part of such a strong and supportive community. 

“Volunteering in one of our shops is a perfect opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. From providing a warm and friendly welcome to pricing up stock and creating eye-catching window displays, there are roles to suit everyone. Without the amazing efforts of our volunteers across the region we simply couldn’t fund the work we do.”
