A pop-up charity shop in St Keverne proved so successful that there are plans to reopen it in the new year.

The shop opened for five days during December, in the vacant office by the village post office, provided by Alan and Marilyn Retallack.

It sold donations of bric-a-brac, books and household goods, accompanied by hot drinks and chat.

It was so popular that £500 was raised over the course of the week, in aid of the Friends of St Keverne Health Centre.

Numerous people have since asked whether the shop can keep going in the new year, on an occasional basis.

Any unwanted Christmas gifts can be dropped to St Keverne Stores ready for when the shop holds its next session.

Mr Retallack’s daughter Lisa Long said: “A big thank you to all who gave their time and unwanted items to make this a success. Watch this space for the new year.”
