Our Hebden Bridge Shop hit by Floods

Our Hebden Bridge Shop hit by Floods

  As you all saw last week we were badly hit by the flooding caused by Storm Ciara.  It's been a very long week at our Hebden Bridge Charity Shop. We've been working hard clearing out all of the damaged stock and display units, disinfecting, cleaning and painting. We've also been carrying out essential maintenance work to hopefully prevent future flooding. With storm Dennis now in full swing, we hope that our flood defences in place will help to protect us from further flooding damage. Unfortunately, we will still remain closed for a little while longer as we re-merchandise and clean our lovely shop. We would like to take this opportunity to say a HUGE Thank You for all the support we've received from our local community! Its times like these when the word 'Community Spirit' really does make you grateful for being based in such a generous and caring part of… Read more
