After seemingly endless weeks when the shutters were down on our charity shop in Alhaurin, staff and customers alike were delighted to see it open again. Subject, of course, to the safety measures and hygiene protocols demanded in these strange times. As we rely to a great extent to the income from the shop, it was not easy juggling finances during the lock down but, again, we were helped by wonderful supporters and donations. Customers are happy to queue outside and wait their turn and new merchandise is coming in every day. (Helped no doubt by all the sorting out going on during the weeks we were confined to our homes!)
