Members of the public are being encouraged to visit the store and take a look around. The store will be COVID-19 secure and staff, volunteers and customers will need to follow all current rules and Government guidance.

Anil Gupta, head of retail for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “We’d love to see people pop in to explore the latest of our shops to open. There will be a chance to meet members of the aircrew and find out about the work undertaken during each of the charity’s lifesaving missions. The opening and launch will also provide the opportunity for local people to donate quality unwanted goods. We take clothing, furniture, books, CDs and DVDs, toys and bric-a-brac.”

Alison Hill, donor support and volunteer manager for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, added: “Midlands Air Ambulance Charity is so pleased to be able to open its fifth charity shop, in the heart of Shrewsbury. We hope people can come along and take a look around the new store.

“We also really hope people will get in touch with us about becoming a volunteer. Last year, the number of volunteering hours donated in our charity shops funded 63 of our lifesaving missions.”

This is the fifth Midlands Air Ambulance charity shop to join the group, with the other four located in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Walsall, Wellington and West Bromwich.
