Barnardo's expands retail chain

Barnardo’s have opened 18 shops selling used items such as furniture and clothing, as part of the children’s charity’s plans to expand its retail chain.

Barnardo’s acquired the shops from a national learning disabilities charity HFT which decided to offload the stores after a strategic review.

The new units are in addition to Barnardo’s plasn to open 60 stores by the end of the financial year. Barnardo’s has 380 shops across the UK selling donated clothes, electrical goods, and other household items.

Barnardo’s director of retail and trading Gerard Cousins said: “Barnardo’s is rapidly expanding its retail chain and taking on the Hft shops as well as their staff plays a part in this. Our retail chain raised over £7m last financial year for our cause and we are set to beat this total by the end of this year.

“I believe our work has a link with that of Hft, therefore staff, volunteers and customers can be assured that they will continue to raise money to help those in need.”
