Our first Oxford shop is now open
We’ve now opened our first charity shop in Oxford.
We’ve taken over a unit in London Road, Headington and transformed it into one of its boutique charity shops.
It was officially opened on Friday March 31 and is the 16th Children’s Air Ambulance shop to open its doors nationally.
We’re looking for people to help out either by volunteering in store or by donating good quality items to help boost stock. People can pick up a bag in store which they can take away and fill with items the charity could use for stock.
The shop is selling a range of men’s and women’s fashion, homeware, accessories, books and bric-a-brac.
Kerry Martin, new shops development manager, said: “The money raised in our charity shops is a vital source of income and plays a huge part in keeping our helicopter flying to save young lives.
“We’re really looking forward to getting to know the people of Headington and we’re sure they will like what they see when they pop in to our new boutique shop.”
The charity has taken over the former Clic Sargent shop – at 108 London Road and is situated between HSBC and Marie Curie shop.
Anyone wishing to donate or volunteer can either pop into the shop or call 0300 3045 999.
The shop is being managed by Naomi Green who is new to the area having previously run the country’s first vegan charity shop.
