Second Time Around

A new shop has opened on Edward Road that accepts gifts of unwanted clothes, household goods and furniture. Instead of throwing things ‘away’ (which means the Council’s incinerator), just take them to 204 Edward Rd and other residents can buy them. Value stays in the area and we all help each other.

Proceeds go to the Jericho Foundation, a local charity that helps people off unemployment and back to work. They get work experience helping in the shop and later move onto other retail jobs.

The shop looks really fresh and new. Well done Jericho!
