Yorkshire Cancer Research to re-open high street shops

Date: 09 April 2021

Yorkshire Cancer Research will re-open its high street shops in Northallerton, Tadcaster and Knaresborough when Covid-19 restrictions are eased next week.

The charity is looking forward to welcoming back customers and volunteers at the shops, which play a vital role in raising important funds for pioneering cancer research in Yorkshire. 

Covid-secure measures will continue to be in place, including hand sanitiser, social distancing and personal protective equipment worn by employees and volunteers.

Dr Kathryn Scott, Chief Executive at Yorkshire Cancer Research, said: “We are so excited to open our doors and start selling on the high street again. Our shops provide valuable funds to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer in Yorkshire. Thanks to the generosity of supporters, we have some great bargains for customers as we welcome them back.”

As the high street shops reopen, Yorkshire Cancer Research is also encouraging supporters in the region to continue to visit its online shop and marketplaces on eBay, Depop, Discogs and Gumtree.

Dr Scott continued: “Along with many other charities, we have experienced a significant loss of income during the coronavirus pandemic. To try to reduce this loss, we acted quickly to start selling donated goods online. We are thankful to all those who continued to support us by donating second-hand belongings and searching for bargains in our online marketplaces during lockdown.”

The shop opening hours will be:

  • Northallerton – Reopens Mon 12th April – Open Mon-Sat 9am-4pm, Sun 10am-4pm
  • Tadcaster – Reopens Tues 13th April – Open Tues-Sat 10am-3pm (closed Sun and Mon)
