A NEW community hub offering barista-style coffee and sustainable fashion is set to open next month in Dudley.

Compton Care is opening a pre-loved fashion store and coffee shop offering coffee, cakes and sandwiches at the Churchill Shopping Centre.

The shop, selling women's, men's and children's clothing, will open on Thursday June 27.

There will also be an internet cafe area for members of the public to have free access to computers.

Harjinder Samra, Compton Care’s Associate Director of Trading, said: “We’re really excited about opening the hub and are looking forward to welcoming the people of Dudley through our doors.

"We’re delighted to be bringing our sustainable fashion to the town where shoppers can grab themselves preloved pieces at great value for money while supporting a charity that helps the local community, when they need us the most.

“We know that shoppers also enjoy a place where they can sit back and relax with a cuppa and here we have it all under one roof!

"We’re proud to be part of the Dudley community and to offer support to the people of the town.

"With the hub, not only are we providing free access to computers to help those who are experiencing difficulties getting online, but we also have volunteering opportunities where we will provide training and support for people to learn new skills, make friends and enhance their CV.”

All proceeds from the store and coffee shop will contribute to the specialist palliative and end-of-life care the charity provides.

Every year, the charity supports patients in the Dudley area through its range of specialist services, including clinical care at its inpatient unit to help manage very complex symptoms.

It also supports patients out in the community, providing specialist care in the place they call home.

Patients can also access the Living Well Service which provides emotional and practical tools to help them continue living active, independent lives.
