Orkney has some excellent charity shops some of which we have featured in The Orkney News.
When you buy something from a charity shop it is a win-win-win. 1.you are recycling 2.you are giving your money to a charity 3. you will get a bargain
The CLAN Cancer Support shop in Victoria Street, Kirkwall, Orkney is supporting the Charity Retail Association, which represents charity shops across the UK, in its 2018 festive campaign. The organisation has launched a national campaign to encourage people to buy their Secret Santa gifts from charity shops.
CLAN hopes people will support this locally across all CLAN’s charity shops in over the next few weeks.
Fiona Fernie, CLAN’s head of income generation and business development, said:
“Christmas is always a very special time of year and our shops have a wide range of stock which would make for the perfect Secret Santa gift for family, friends or work colleagues.
“The continued support we receive from the communities we work in is very important to us and means we can provide a full range of cancer support services free of charge, which can make a significant and positive difference to people.
“We’re always happy to welcome customers and shopping with us during the Christmas season is the perfect way to help us continue to support people across the north-east, Moray, Orkney and Shetland who have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.”
