We caught up with Age Concern recently to find out more about their new store which opens on our Village next month.
Age Concern are expanding their services into Buckshaw Village with a new shop opening on Lancaster Way.
The new retail shop will be opening in early September and will be a welcome new addition to Age Concern’s existing portfolio of established shops. Head of Retail Bel Fry commented, “Our new shop is situated within a popular area of Buckshaw; the new premises will sit between popular brands Dominos Pizza and Costa Coffee and behind Aldi supermarket. The abundance of FREE parking will make dropping off donations, accessing information and support about services and shopping even easier. We are thrilled to be joining the local community.”
Last year, Age Concern’s retail shops saved 62 tons of pre-loved items going to landfills, provided hundreds of volunteering hours for people wanting to give something back, make new friends or build new skills ready for employment and generated thousands of pounds of revenue. Funds went directly back into Age Concerns award winning dementia services and supporting it’s none-funded services such as the befriending and Access to Benefits.
From Friday 13th September Age Concern, partnered with McClure Solicitors, will be providing FREE Will and Will Review Clinics from the shop every week.
These clinics along with other advice sessions, such as Lasting Powers of Attorney, will be available to book online through Age Concern’s new website: www.ageisjustanumber.org.uk or by calling 01772 552886.
