Charity shop anniversary celebration is 'all about the volunteers'

Rugby Editorial 20th Jul, 2018   0

VOLUNTEERS at a charity shop in Rugby have been celebrating eight years of raising funds for people with brain injuries this week.

The manager of the Headway shop in Clifton Road said the birthday celebrations were all about the volunteers whose dedication has kept the shop open for the last eight years.

Sara Galligan said: “The volunteers are the lifeblood of our shop. We are a great team and have a lot of fun and cake along the way!

“It is wonderful that we have managed to be part of the community for eight years now and been able to raise vital funds to help brain injury survivors, carers and their families.”

Volunteer Emma Upton has been helping at the shop for a year now.

She said: “I love helping out at the shop as you get to meet new people. It also wonderful to know that you are helping families across the region cope with the effects of brain injury.”

The shop, which is now open seven days a week, welcomes donations of bric-a-brac, toys, clothes, shoes, bags and small electricals and furniture. Visit for more information.
