“Shiney Things has been a much needed resource in Shiney Row as we have never had a charity shop here before. As volunteers we all enjoy helping in the shop and it has also helped many of us to build in confidence as we work well together as a group and on our own. We all support each other to cover the shop.”
Clothes, toys, books, CD's, DVD's, battery operated items, shoes, household goods (i.e. bedding, kitchenware, small carpets, rugs, small car items), seasonal gifts, jewellery, new toiletries.
The project was jointly commissioned by Gentoo and ShARP when they identified that there were no charity shops in Shiney Row or Penshaw. Volunteers from ShARP drafted a business plan and presented their proposal to Gentoo who approved the project. A joiner from Gentoo then worked on fitting out a room within the centre where the shop is now situated.
