Bath Cancer Unit Support Group is appealing for volunteers to help run its pop-up charity shop in Trowbridge and is looking for items to sell.

The temporary shop in Castle Place Shopping Centre will be open every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until November 13, if the charity can find enough people to help.

The shop raises thousands of pounds every year for the cancer unit at Bath’s Royal United Hospital. It opens at different times of the year when retail space becomes available in the shopping centre.

As well as volunteer helpers, the group is also appealing for donations of household items to sell in the shop, but not clothes.

Sue Oliver, who is chair of the charity’s Trowbridge fundraising committee, said: “We would like to thank the Castle Place management team for letting us use one of their vacant units until mid November.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to raise as much money as we can for the cancer unit, but we desperately need more volunteers so that we can keep the shop open four days a week. If you can spare an hour or two to help us, then please do get in touch.”

Shop volunteers and people with items to donate can contact Sue on 07955 076193.

The group would also like to thank organisers of the recent Corsham 10K for their support. The popular event is the biggest of its kind in Wiltshire and was the brainchild of Stefan Barbaruk who chose BCUSG as the main charity to benefit from this year’s race, which took place on September 26.

BCUSG chairman Mike Taylor said: “We’re extremely grateful that the organisers of the Corsham 10K decided to support us and the cancer unit this year. We would also like to thank everyone who ran on behalf of the charity and who donated.”

Race organisers will announce the total raised by this year’s event shortly.

To make a financial donation to the group, please email or phone Alan Webb on 07896 741233.
