I took some things into the Arena charity shop on Bath Street and found out about this wonderful idea. They want people to sign up for just £2 per month which if 1,000 people did would give them £2,000 to cover their running costs for all the excellent work they do in the community.They would also love to own their own van as this would save them having to hire one. As not everyone goes into their shop, I thought it would be great to let more people know about this very worth while local cause that really does make a difference.
