Children’s charity Break is re-opening nine of its charity shops on June 15, including the ones in Taverham and Sheringham.

Break had been hit significantly by the coronavirus outbreak because of the closure of its shops during the lockdown period, cancellation of fundraising activities and postponement of their world class art trail GoGo Discover, which this year was going to be dinosaurs.

Break shops will be in-line with government advice, including a limit on the number of customers allowed in at any one time, hand sanitiser available on the way in and out and lunchtime closures to allow cleaning.

There will be a screen at the till, no changing room facilities and encouragement to pay using contactless methods.

Donations are still welcome but will only be accepted between 9am and 10am and 4pm and 5pm each day. All donations will be quarantined for a minimum of seven days before being put in the shops.

Lesley Leigh, Break’s retail business manager, said: “We’ve made a lot of changes to how our shops will operate to create a safe donation and shopping experience and are really excited to be welcoming back our loyal supporters.”

We are hoping the reopening will prove to be a fantastic success and create a springboard to re-open the rest of our shops across the region.
