SOS Africa Charity Shop (21 High Street, Shepton Mallet)

Following the successes of our Ilfracombe shop, in April 2013 SOS Africa opened its second Charity Shop in Shepton Mallet, the town where the charity was first founded back in 2003 and the location of its UK headquarters. The shop, decorated with an African theme, was the result of weeks of careful preparation. The star of the show was Monduli the giraffe who recently rose to fame in Tanzania by taking a free dip in a local swimming pool. Our vision for the shop was that it should not only raise much needed funds but that it should open the doors to the local community and offer them value for money; this has proven to be true.

SOS Africa Charity Shop (23 Cheap Street, Frome)

In November 2015 the SOS Africa staff and volunteers embarked upon another exciting fundraising venture; the renovation and opening of a new charity shop on Cheap Street, Frome. Over the weeks which followed we removed all of the previous furnishings and installed clothes railings, a new counter and new display units. By the time graphic designer Claudia had added her artistic touch, the old shop had become virtually unrecognisable. We were all delighted with the outcome but knew that the true test would always be the reaction of our new customers. On it's opening day the new shop was inundated with excited customers, enjoying a small spending spree which they knew would make a big difference to the lives of the SOS Africa children; in just a few hours it had generated enough funding to pay for a year’s school tuition for an SOS Africa child.
