The Jessie May local children’s charity has opened its first ever pop-up shop in Yate Shopping Centre and took over £1,800 in the first week thanks to the generosity of local residents.
The shop, donated free for two months to 31st July by the Centre, is located at 33 North Walk. Andrew Lowrey, Shopping Centre Manager, said: “As a local children’s charity we wanted to provide support for this very valuable service. It is not a high profile charity but with a pop-up shop in the Centre, it will help them both raise funds and establish a local profile.”
Head of Fundraising and Communications for the Charity, Julian Withers, said: “We had a fabulous first week and took over £1800! I don’t think any of us expected this and we are amazed at everyone’s generosity.”
Customers at Yate Leisure Centre can now enjoy great Fairtrade coffee with the opening of its new SOHO Coffee Co. outlet as part of the ongoing programme of improvements.
Alongside organic, Fairtrade coffee and handmade fresh food, SOHO Coffee Co. also offers a Protein Shakes menu, specifically developed for their health club sites.
Ben Beasley, Director of Commercial Development at Circadian Trust said: “We are always looking to improve the leisure centre facilities and add to the customer experience. SOHO Coffee does a fantastic job and we are sure the Yate community will enjoy the new facilities.”
