Thank you

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff and volunteers who supported and helped us to have our first attempt at running the community charity shop in Llandrindod Wells last week. The community charity shop is available to charities to run it like it was their own shop for one week where upon we pay a set amount of £200 for using it, and we then pocket all money made on top of that. Last week we made a profit of £1478.68. Regardless of the money that was raised, it was a fabulous opportunity for staff to go and meet members of the public and raise the profile of Cymryd Rhan. I have received feedback that members of the public were impressed that Cymryd Rhan had decided to take on the community charity shop and that staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming when people visited the shop.

So I would like to thank everyone for being involved, from collecting items in preparation for our opening, working in the shop during the week and for clearing the shop at the end of the week which staff had done in their own time. We do have the shop again week commencing 24th November, so please either consider items that you would like to donate, or to offer to come and work in the shop during that week, or to ask people you support whether they would like to come and help run it.

We will update you as to how we spent the money.
