Radstock Co-operative Society were delighted to be able to donate £1,700 worth of shoes to a local charity shop, “Barnardo’s.” With the redevelopment of the Radstock site and the opening of a temporary store at Marcroft Court, Frome Road, Radstock, the Society has some outstanding stock that it was unable to dispose of prior to the Radco store closing. In particular, an abundance of unsold shoes that would have gone to land fill. As the Society is always looking at supporting the local community, they came up with the idea of donating the shoes to a local deserving cause, Barnardo’s.
“Barnardo’s” in Midsomer Norton will be using the donation of a whole pallet of shoes valued at £1700 to help raise vital funds to maintain and develop a wide range of services for children, young people, and their families across the UK.
Barnardo’s believe in children – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. The charity works to ensure that their needs are met and their voices are heard.
