GOODIE bags will be up for grabs as a new charity shop opens in Dudley.

Compton Care is opening a new community hub at the Churchill Shopping Centre on Thursday (June 27) and to thank the local community for its support, there are some exclusive offers up for grabs on its first day.

The hub will include a pre-loved fashion store, a coffee shop and an area with free access to computers for members of the public to use.

The first 50 shoppers after the store opens at 9am will get a goodie bag.

Michelle Reece, Store Manager at Dudley, said: “We’re delighted to part of the Dudley community and our first day is going to be exciting for us all.

“We open at 9am and the first 50 shoppers through the door will receive a free goody bag containing some lovely items and exclusive offers. There’s also 10% off throughout the store on the day.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming you, so come and say hello, grab yourself some goodies and pick up some pre-loved fashion pieces.

"All funds raised will help Compton to continue to provide its specialist palliative care and bereavement support services to the local community.”

The team are also looking for volunteers to join the hub.

Michelle added: “We’re appealing for people with some spare time on their hands to join this exciting new team at Dudley. We provide full training and support for people wishing to become a volunteer, which gives the opportunity to learn new skills, make friends and enhance their CV.”

From Thursday 27 June, the hub will be open 9am – 4pm Monday to Saturday.

All proceeds will contribute to the specialist palliative and end of life care the charity provides to people in our communities and support for their families.
