Our Charity Shop is now closed…
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the closure of The Cellar Trust Charity Shop. As many of you know, our Charity Shop is more than just a shop. We provided a supportive retail training environment where people recovering from mental health problems could come to learn retail and customer service skills as well as build confidence and self-esteem.
As or Shipley shop is our only store, we need is to be busy and bustling, with staff, clients, volunteers and customers in order for it to run successfully and break even on our running cross. Thanks to the support of the Shipley community and our fantastic team, we’ve grown to be able to achieve this. As the Shop is so small (or cosy as we always like to call it!) we will be unable to deliver it safely without it operating at a significant financial loss. The safety of our staff, volunteers and clients must always come first, which is why we have come to this decision.
We unfortunately won’t be able to accept any new donations, so please to give your items to our local charity shop friends if you can when they reopen.
We’d like to thank the staff, volunteers, clients, and customers for an amazing seven years. The shop wouldn’t be where it is without our extended Team Cellar family.
