Brixham Rotarians have opened up a pop-up shop in Brixham town centre. Selling bric-a-brac, books, household goods, toys, puzzles and PAT-tested electrical goods and clothes, the shop has been kindly offered to Brixham Rotary Club for a short period.
The shop, located in 23 Fore Street, Brixham, opposite Tesco Express, has already proved to be popular with both visitors and locals.
Staffed by volunteers from Brixham Rotary and their partners, together with Friends of Rotary and members of the Brixham Inner Wheel Club, the shop is open daily from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.
David Sharpe, Chairman of Brixham Rotary’s Fundraising committee is the main organiser of the shop and says: “We have had so many generous offers of goods to stock the shop and we welcome more. Just pop into the shop and let us know. We can arrange collection.”
“Money collected will go into our fundraising account and will be distributed to local charities.”
John Burt, President of Brixham Rotary, said: “Thanks to the owner, we have been given the use of this shop for a temporary period. Once again, we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of Brixham people and visitors.
“I’d like to pay tribute to all our volunteers and in particular, David Sharpe, our fundraiser. It has proved to be a full-time job for David and his wife, Marilyn.”
The shop, at 8-10 Fore Street, Brixham, opens daily from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm.
Donations of good quality items are welcome, crockery, kitchenware, books, clothing and toys are all required.
