The Mayor of Havering will open a new charity shop on Thursday next week.

Cllr Lynden Thorpe will unveil the new Age UK premises in South Street, Romford.

Members of the public are invited to attend the event where there will be refreshments, goodie bags, music and more from 11am-12.30pm.

Age UK London’s Romford shop is a bright and stylish new retail hub, offering a range of Age UK products and services for the over-50s, selling new and donated items and providing free information and advice, from Age UK Redbridge.

Profits from the shop go towards charitable services and improving the lives of older Londoners.

Samantha Mauger, Chief Executive of Age UK London, said “We are very happy to launch Age UK London’s Romford Hub, which will bring the very best of Age UK products and services to the local high street.”
