Wymondham RSPCA shop set to move to larger premises

A Wymondham charity shop is moving home to larger premises just across the road.

The RSPCA has had a store in the town in Middleton Street for the last 12 years. The Norwich and Mid Norfolk Branch of the RSPCA announced that they would be the new occupiers of the AG Proctor and Son shoe shop.

Sophie Howlett, branch operations manager, said they jumped at the opportunity when they heard that Terry Proctor, the owner of the shop, was closing down because of retirement.

'We have such loyal supporters that donate goods to us, and we have always struggled to stock everything onsite especially larger items and electrical goods. Hopefully the move means we will be able to offer a wider selection of items to our customers, and in turn raise more money for the animal re-homing centre based on Barrack Street in Norwich as we are a self funding branch and all money raised in Norfolk stays in Norfolk,' she said.

The RSPCA are looking to open the new shop in the summer and would like to hear from anyone wishing to volunteer to help out sorting stock and serving customers. They are also looking for a deputy manager for two days a week. For further information, call 01953 602558.
