Helen said: “We are excited to be opening our first charity store, this is vital in raising much needed funds to continue our vital working preventing cruelty to animals, relieving suffering and advancing animal welfare in Northern Ireland. We would really appreciate support, by either, donating a little of your spare time volunteering or giving us your pre-loved goods. We would love to hear from anyone who is interested in volunteering or donating.”
