Shoppers in Cwmbran are being urged to pick up a bargain, while helping local animals in need, as a branch of the RSPCA prepares for the official opening of its new store.
The RSPCA Gwent Branch recently opened a new store in the Cwmbran Centre, and are now preparing for the official opening ceremony this Thursday (9 December).
Capital FM DJs Josh Andrews and Kally Davies will be special guests at the 11am opening - and are set to cut the ribbon as the North Walk charity shop takes “pride of place” in the town’s iconic shopping centre.
Members of the public – and their dogs – are encouraged to attend the official opening; as the RSPCA’s Gwent Branch opens its second shop, further to its other store in Chepstow.
Shoppers can benefit from a one day only special discount of 10 per cent on all products too, to mark the occasion.
The RSPCA has over 160 branches across England and Wales – who operate as separately-registered charities to the RSPCA, and undertake locally-focussed animal welfare work. RSPCA Gwent Branch work across Gwent and Brecknock, and help animal owners through activities such as community engagement and practical assistance.
New shop manager Adam Hewitt said: “It’s been such a tough couple of years for people across Gwent – but it’s been great to see our high streets picking up again in recent months, and we’re delighted that our new store is taking pride of place at Cwmbran Centre.
“We’re so excited by our official opening on 9 December – and can’t wait for Josh and Kally, from Capital FM, to join us to kick-start the festivities. Everyone’s welcome to come and join the fun – including dogs!
“There’ll also be a special 10% discount on all products on the day – so it’s a great chance for shoppers in Cwmbran to pick up a bargain, and help Gwent Branch’s local work for animals in our community at the same time.”
Members of the public can also enquire about volunteering at the new shop.
Adam added: “We’re always on the lookout for people to join our team. Volunteering at our shop is a varied and rewarding role; including sorting through donations, steaming clothes, pricing and putting stock out, to merchandising – all for the benefit of local animals.”
