On Friday, May 4Save the Childrens Tewkesbury branch is hosting its first ever Pop-up Shop. This event will be for one day only to coincide with National Save the Children week.
Last year was a spectacular year for Save the Children with the launch of No Child Born to Die and Born to Shine, international breakthroughs for children worldwide and the development of their exemplary programme work in the UK.
Now in 2012 the charitys work with children in the UK continues to grow, tackling child poverty directly, family by family, in some of the poorest communities.
In Western Africa almost three million children are facing a growing hunger crisis triggered by crop shortages, rising food prices and insecurity in Niger and neighbouring countries in the Sahel region of West Africa. Save the Children are already on the ground, urgently working to reach vulnerable families before its too late.
Here in Tewkesbury, their pop-up shop will be open for trading from 9.30am-4pm on May 4, with over 20 local small businesses renting tables to bring a wide range of goods available for sale. These will include cupcakes, bespoke artwork, ceramics, jewellery, handmade crafts, handmade soaps and much, much more.
Laurence Robertson MP has kindly agreed to officially open the shop, showing his support both for Save the Children and local small businesses.
