St Barnabas House charity shop in Durrington is closing for two weeks for maintenance work.

After 17 years of trading, the St Barnabas House charity shop in Manor Parade, Salvington Road, Durrington, needs some essential maintenance work to be carried out.

The charity is also taking this opportunity to make some improvements and give the shop a new look.

The shop closed for the refurbishment on Saturday.

Donations can be made during this time to the St Barnabas van, which will be in the car park at the rear of the shop Monday to Friday, from 9.30am to 3.30pm.

Free collection of larger items can be arranged by calling the retail distribution centre on 01903 275660.

Head of retail Jan Harper said: “Durrington is one of our busiest shops. Last year alone, our incredible team of volunteers processed and sold over 70,000 items that had been generously donated by the people of Durrington.

“This amazing effort produced enough funds, to pay for the equivalent of all of the care services provided by St Barnabas House for a fortnight. I’m delighted that we can take this opportunity to improve the shop for our customers.

“We apologise to all our customers and donors for any inconvenience, and look forward to welcoming everyone to our new-look shop soon, and to an exciting re-opening event, details to be announced shortly.”

The nearest St Barnabas shops can be found at Broadwater, Ferring and Rowlands Road, Worthing.
