Swindon Samaritans will reopen their Curtis Street charity shop on Thursday, 3 June at 10am.

The organisation says it can't wait to welcome everybody back to what it promises is a bright, fresh and vibrant treasure trive.
We’re very excited that our charity shop is re-opening and so I’m asking for your help in promoting this to encourage everyone to come and check us out, please.

To celebrate its reopening, the shop will have a children’s clothes and toys promotion in its first week.

Volunteer branch director Susie said: "After a challenging year for everyone, it’s great to be able to throw open our front door again as our shop is crucial in helping to fund our free listening service to anyone who is struggling to cope. 

"I’d like to thank all of our previous shop volunteers and welcome our new volunteers who have worked so hard to get us ready to welcome everyone on 3 June.

"I’d also like to thank Wiltshire Community Foundation for their support over the last year and especially in helping us to purchase items to ensure we can re-open safely. 

"We are so excited to be part of our local community again and can’t wait to meet you."
