Ilford North MP Lee Scott opens Sue Ryder shop in Hainault

Shoppers can hunt for bargains while helping people with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses after MP Lee Scott opened a charity shop in Hainault this morning.

The Ilford North MP cut the ribbon outside the Sue Ryder store in Manford Way before customers got their first chance to browse the shelves.

The shop contains second hand items such as clothes, books, CDs and DVDs as well as new goods including art equipment, guitars and dolls’ houses.

Carrie Reid, Sue Ryder’s business manager, said: “Our fabulous new store will offer an excellent shopping experience.”

The store will be led by shop manager Denise Stockings who showed shoppers around the store with the help of staff.

It is looking to recruit volunteers for the shop to help with tasks including sorting and preparing stock, sales and appeals.
