CHARITY SHOP CLOSURE JUNE 2020
Wythall Animal Sanctuary’s Charity Shop in Cotteridge has ceased trading and, in spite of relaxation of the covid-19 “lockdown” rules, will not be reopening.
The Sanctuary’s Board of Trustees has regrettably had to take this decision because the size, shape, and layout of the Shop premises do not lend themselves to any degree of social distancing. Our priority is, and always will be, the safety of people - both Staff and customers - on our premises.
Sadly, after much consideration, the Board does not feel that it can provide that level of safety within the Shop premises; hence the Shop’s closure.
Wythall Animal Sanctuary’s Shop has been trading in Cotteridge for many years and it is very disappointing that it will no longer be part of the community. The Board, and indeed me personally, would like to thank everyone who has played their part in supporting the Sanctuary....staff, volunteers, customers and those who so kindly donated items for sale. I can assure you that your efforts have significantly helped the animals that we care for.
One final point....can I ask that anyone who has donations for the Sanctuary to please take them to one or more of the other very deserving Charity’s who will doubtless welcome them with open arms!
Thank you and stay safe,
David I Scott,
Chairman, Board of Trustee Directors.
