The shops have undergone changes and rigorous checks to ensure they are Covid-19 safe and comply with Government guidance, with social distancing measures in place and PPE provided for staff and volunteers.

Tracy Calcraft, Income and Business Services Director, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming customers back to our shops.

"We have been working hard to create a safe and environment for our staff, volunteers and customers. This is now in place and we can’t wait to open our doors.

“The shops are such an important part of Saint Catherine’s and bring in over £1 million each year in much-needed funds, which go towards providing our outstanding patient care.

"Shopping with us is a great way to support the charity and find some bargains at the same time.”
