Nugent inundated with local support for charity shop refurb

3 years ago

By The Guide Liverpool

Nugent, the Liverpool based charity which cares for, educates and protects vulnerable people, has been inundated with local businesses offering their support to refurbish their beloved charity shop to mark its 140th anniversary.

The Nugent shop situated in the heart of South Liverpool on Allerton Road, plays its part in supporting thousands of vulnerable children, young people, adults and families across Merseyside. After 12 years of trading and generating over £850,000, the charity put out an appeal for local businesses to help give its shop a refresh and has so far seen firms come forward to help – but is still in need of a few more donations to reach the £10,000 target to help complete the project. 

The overall project will be led by Simon Krol of Krol Corlett Construction who has generously agreed to coordinate the refurbishment and Jamie Kelly, Director of Studio Up North, who has helped to create a fresh new brand identity for the shop.

Local business who have already come forward help and donate to reach its target are, MPE Interiors, Horizon Floors Ltd, Hardwood Timber Sales, CP Hood Electrical, Blue Yonder and Russell Interiors Ltd.

These businesses have helped with freshly decorated walls, new flooring, new signage, an easier to navigate and accessible layout, improved storage area and a new small breakout area for volunteers, creating a brighter more attractive shop, which will delight shoppers and provide a better working space for volunteers.

Ant Hopkinson, Head of Fundraising & Income Generation from Nugent comments:

“With all charities feeling the pinch, we are extremely grateful for the businesses that have helped us so far.  This is a great response in these uncertain times, but we would like to appeal further in order to finish our vision for our beloved shop. Any donations we receive above our £10K target will be given to people in need. In addition, once allowed to reopen, we are keen to expand our retail offer – so if anyone can help us with clothing, handmade/upcycled items or with our vision to open more charity shops across the region then we’d encourage them to get in touch.”
