Yorkshire Cancer Research to open new shop in Pickering

20 May 2022

Yorkshire Cancer Research is set to open a new shop in the heart of Pickering this summer.

The charity shop will form part of the charity’s ambitious plans to open more shops across the region, and will help prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer in Yorkshire.

Located in the town’s former Trailblazers Outdoor store on Market Place, the shop will stock clothing, toys, homeware, bric-a-brac, books, and entertainment.

Dr Kathryn Scott, Chief Executive at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “Our shops play a vital role in raising funds to help support pioneering research across Yorkshire. As a charity firmly rooted within Yorkshire’s local communities, we strive to be a key part of the fabric of the region.

“The opening of a new shop in Pickering means we can continue to raise awareness of our work while raising much-needed funds, so more people survive cancer. The shop will also bring volunteering and employment opportunities to the town, as well as contributing to the local high street.”

The shop, which is due to open in June 2022, will be run by manager Michele Conway. Michele, alongside a deputy manager, will head a team of volunteers.

Yorkshire Cancer Research is inviting potential volunteers in Pickering to register their interest in supporting the charity.
