A popular charity shop is celebrating the sweet taste of success and marking its fifth birthday with a cake sale. The East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) store in Poringland is hosting the event on Wednesday, 12th July.
Staff and volunteers plan to celebrate with the community by organising a cake sale and raffle, from 10am to 2pm. The shop is less than a mile from The Nook, in Framingham Earl, and has gone from strength to strength since opening in 2018.
Manager Maria Hall said: “I’ve been here since day one and feel pleased and proud of the way we’ve built things up.
“Our shop exceeded its target last year and we’re very thankful to everyone who’s played some part – not least our loyal volunteers and customers.
“I’m also very grateful to have such a brilliant deputy in Sharon Wright. It’s a great team and our shop is an important part of the community.
“That’s why we want to mark its fifth birthday in style and everyone is welcome to come along and join us. It should be fun.”
Maria was Deputy Manager at EACH’s Long Stratton shop before moving to Poringland. Prior to that she had been volunteering for the charity since 2009.
“I feel a strong connection and love my job,” she said.
“It’s an amazing charity and the retail side of things is a vitally important way of raising funds.”
The Poringland shop is in Overtons Way and one of 19 across Norfolk.
