Pied Piper Appeal opens second charity shop
By David Wood | 23rd June 2021
The Mayor of Gloucester, Collette Finnegan, has officially opened The Pied Piper Appeal's children's charity's second shop in Hucclecote.
With the help of local businesses generously donating materials and their team's time, the charity shop in Silverdale Parade was successfully opened at the weekend.
Chairman Nick Broady said: "After many months of negotiations with our new landlord and fantastic help from Louise Crook and her team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys in Cheltenham, we were thrilled to open our second Pied Piper Charity Shop in Hucclecote, Gloucester, at the weekend.
"We would like to thank Premiere Kitchens, Malvern Tyres, Castle Electricals, CJ Hole and our many volunteers for helping us to get the shop ready and look forward to being part of the Hucclecote community."
Pied Piper enjoyed record first day takings and had a safe and socially distanced footfall all day. The hard work by Louise Taylor, shop manager, the chairman and vice chair, and a team of volunteers has resulted in the charity's retail success, and the shop is looking forward to welcoming many more local residents.
This opening coincides with the third birthday of the Brockworth shop, offering charity supporters a choice in where to drop donations and buy sustainably and reuse, generating much-needed funds to support sick and disabled children in the county.
