Oswestry-based charity, Qube are inviting local shoppers to come along to the summer Charity Market on Friday, 7th June at the Bailey Head in Oswestry.
The stalls are now fully-booked with around thirty charities attending the annual event, a joint initiative between Qube and Oswestry Town Council to celebrate National Volunteers Week. Visitors will be able to find out about support and information from a wide variety of local and national groups and organisations. Qube will be welcoming along some familiar faces like the Alzheimer's Society, Homestart Shropshire and Nightingale House and some new organisations like Oswestry and Borders Extinction Rebellion.
Qube Volunteering Officer, Kim Thompson Lawrence, said the Charity Market was a popular event with both charities and shoppers. She said: “The Charity Market is a really popular event with the charities and the public. The charities get a chance to raise their profile, raise money and hopefully sign-up some new volunteers while the visitors get to find out loads information in one place about what services there are locally and can pick up a bargain. We’re very grateful to Oswestry Town Council for working with us again to stage the event, hopefully the sun will be shining on us again this year.”
The Charity Market takes place on Friday 7th June at the Bailey Head, Oswestry from 9am to 2pm.
