A charity shop which was completely destroyed in a fire in West Norfolk last month, has reopened with a mobile 'stop and shop' store.
Staff and volunteers from the King's Lynn Sue Ryder store will be setting up shop on the Tuesday Market Place with their mobile 'stop and shop' store.
On October 18, a huge blaze ripped through the High Street shop, destroying the building and most of its contents, but it has not deterred dedicated staff and volunteers.
Jo Panks, retail area manager for north, south and west Norfolk, said: 'All the Sue Ryder staff and volunteers were obviously extremely shocked and saddened by this awful event but our resilience and determination has kicked in as the healthcare we raise funds for is just so important to us.'
This determination is the reason behind opening the mobile store.
