This means that all 11 shops across the local area will be open again by August 19.

Following on from phase one in July, which saw the reopening of shops in Bridlington, Malton, Ramshill (Scarborough), Hunmanby and Filey, phase two will run as follows:

* Driffield, Victoria Road (Scarborough), Falsgrave (Scarborough) and Whitby open from Thursday August 6.

* Pickering open from Wednesday August 12.

* Helmsley open from Wednesday August 19.

The shops will be open from Wednesday to Saturday, 10.30am to 3.30pm (closing for 45 minutes at lunchtime), and will be able to accept donated goods during opening hours.

Donated items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being available for sale.

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

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager, said: “We can’t wait to open our next six shops and welcome back customers across the whole area covered by Saint Catherine’s.

“Our first phase of reopening, which included five shops, has gone really well thanks to the hard work of our shop managers and volunteers.

"We have had some great feedback from customers too, who are glad to be back and supporting Saint Catherine’s.”
