On Monday the first ever off site GSPCA Charity Shop opened its doors.

The shop, headed up by Michelle Champion and her great team of volunteers has had a fantastic first week and lots of kind and positive feedback.

The shop is located next to Fillers and some may remember it as the Christian Aid or Oxfam shop.
