A Dalston charity shop is reopening in style and celebrating NHS staff, carers and community members with colourful window displays.
London-based environmental charity TRAID plans to open its largest stores in Dalston, Kilburn, Peckham and Shepherd’s Bush on June 18 enabling customers to shop while social distancing.
The charity’s first window displays since lockdown have been designed by TRAID’s Francesco Colucci and draw inspiration from the plethora of rainbows still decorating streets up and down the country, displayed to show appreciation for key workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
Maria Chenoweth TRAID’s CEO said: ““We anticipate charity shops will have an important role providing affordable sustainable clothing to Londoners while funding local, national and global causes. They are needed more than ever in the aftermath of this unprecedented pandemic.”
Safety measures put in place by the charity include closing changing rooms, social distancing signs, quarantining all donations for 72 hours, personal protective equipment for staff, shielded till areas, hand-sanitiser for customers and staff - and regular cleaning.
