Important announcement – Charity and Coffee shops

Yesterday, Wednesday 27th January 2016, we had an incident at our shops in Hamilton.

Part of the side wall to the building collapsed, taking out a gas pipe on the way down.  Thankfully, nobody was injured.

Until further notice, our charity shop will be closed for more structural inspections to the masonary and the full side wall.  Potentially, it may have to be rebuilt, which we are told, may take several weeks.

Please understand that we CANNOT accept any donations at this time until we are given the ‘all clear’ that the shop is safe to enter.

On the positive side, it has been indicated that we might be able to open the coffee shop ONLY on Monday depending on building investigation, however, we will not be accepting any donations at the coffee shop.

Many thanks and we will update you as we get more information.

A special thanks to Diane at The Woodside Bar for her hospitality after the evacuation of our building.  Spook has a nice drink of water!
