A charity shop which was opened by the Duchess of Cambridge is celebrating a boom in sales – so much so, more donations are needed.
The newly-opened East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) shop in Station Road, Holt, is proving to be a great success following its recent royal visit.
The Duchess of Cambridge, who is the charity's royal patron, became the first customer at the shop which she officially opened in March. As well as taking a tour of the shop, she also met staff and long-serving volunteers and families who receive care and support from EACH.
Shop manager Laura McKay said: 'We've had a great response from the Holt community since we opened, with lots of customers visiting the shop regularly. One thing we do need is an increase in donations so we're able to keep up with demand.'
The shop is now in need of clean, good-quality clothing, bric-a-brac, modern paperback books, toys, jewellery, DVDs/CDs, household linens, retro and vintage clothes and small electrical items.

There are spaces at the front of the shop for people to pull up and deliver items.
The charity also accepts donations of good- quality furniture and can collect it if anyone is unable to transport it themselves by calling 01842 821620.
