Xcel Community Shop
Since opening in February 2015 the community shop has gone from strength to strength. Run solely by volunteers, the shop is now open Monday to Friday. As well as selling low cost items the shop provides essential items to users of the furniture project and foodbank. So far the shop has helped over 50 people with free items and recycled over 50 tonnes of unwanted items.
One of the highlights of 2015 was the Xcel Community Shop Fashion Show in October. Over 100 people turned up at the bowling alley to watch the catwalk show, full of outfits using clothes from the shop. The event raised a fantastic £1050 for the Xcel Project. Keep an eye out for the next fashion show sometime in 2016!
