Over the past year or so we have been exploring all sorts of new ways to raise money we haven’t explored before. Back last year April & Wendy had the great idea of hosting our very own charity pop -up shop, and the rest was history!
Between January and February we spent long days and nights sorting, labelling and pricing over 600 items ready to sell at our pop-up shop.
All items were kindly donated by the lovely people in the Staffordshire community and also our very own Pathway Project staff – thank you to all of the kind people that donated some fantastic items.
February saw all hands on deck and the launch of our very first popup shop at The Field Community space in Lichfield centre, after a few slight hiccups the morning of (including the keys being missing from the night before) we were open and ready for business!
We had all sorts on offer from Lulu Guinness hand bags, a gorgeous gold Vivienne Westwood party dress to clothing from high street favourites from Topshop and River Island – we had something for everyone!
We’re proud to say our first ever popup was a tremendous success raising £964 over the course of two days.
Thank you to everyone that attended, we had such a great time, and hope to host another pop up in the not too distant future.
