Enjoy Retail Therapy And Support Midlands Air Ambulance Charity

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is welcoming shoppers to its new charity shop in West Bromwich town centre, at 12.00pm on Friday 4th December.

The new shop will be located on the High Street, opposite McDonalds, and will be the charity’s third shop, alongside its two existing shops located in Wellington in Telford and Newcastle Under Lyme.

Midlands Air Ambulance Charity ambassador and Paralympian Gold Dressage Medalist, Lee Pearson CBE, will be officially opening the shop alongside Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Barbara Price, and local celebrity, ‘Blind Dave’ Heeley.

The store will sell clothing, accessories, furniture, bric-a-brac, books, CD’s and DVD’s, electrical goods and homeware, but can only exist with support from members of the public.

Anil Gupta, head of retail for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, says: “Our two existing charity shops are a vital source of income for us, and with the location of our HQ in Stourbridge, we are delighted to be opening our third shop in the West Midlands.

“Generous donations from our supporters have ensured that our new shop is ready for the Christmas shopping period, but we will need further donations to keep the shop fully stocked in to the New Year.”

If you would like to donate your quality, unwanted items to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, you can drop them into the charity HQ in Stourbridge, or if you have large items and would like to arrange a free collection, please call the team on 0800 8 40 20 40.
