The Charlie Bear for Cancer Care shop located in the main atrium in the Northern Centre for Cancer Care has opened its shutters after months of closure.
Retail Manager Michelle Charlton and her team of volunteers are now excited to now welcome customers back to the shop after Government guidelines were relaxed on Monday 12 April to allow non-essential shops to re-open.
Opening times are currently Monday-Friday 10.00am -3.30pm, with a wonderful range of cards, gifts, jewellery, bags, hats and headscarves currently available for purchase. Social distancing is in place and hand sanitiser is available on entry.
Unfortunately, headscarf demonstrations are not currently possible due to social distancing requirements, but video demonstrations are available here –
