Age UK Open New Shop & Service Point On Portland
8:15am 28th September 2013
Age UK are opening a new shop and service point on Portland this morning. (10am)
It's in the old library at Fortuneswell.
Money raised from the venture will go towards providing new services for local older residents.
Sustainable living author and broadcaster Tracey West will be there to help open the new shop. Tracey commented "I am so proud to be associated with Age UK in Dorset and absolutely delighted to help celebrate the opening of another shop for Age UK here in Portland.
Their other shop in Dorchester has become a well loved venue for bargain hunters and I am sure the locals will welcome the new one with open arms and happy purses. It's not just the recycled clothing element that excites me about the new shop, their 'Port' and 'Starboard' rooms will offer the community so much more with silver surfing training, wellbeing services and much more; it's a fantastic initiative for Fortuneswell and the surrounding area."
