Tenovus opens new shop in Roath Park Hall

Tenovus, Wales’ leading cancer charity, will be adding to their portfolio of newly designed charity shops in an unusual location – a converted church hall in Roath.

The property, which is on the site of the old Roath Park Methodist Church, had previously been empty for over 25 years, until a local couple decided to convert it into two retail plots downstairs with an apartment upstairs.

Tim Finch, Head of Retail and Community Fundraising at Tenovus, said,

“We are delighted to be opening this new shop in such a fantastic and unique location. We hope the  community of Roath will support our new shop, which will be filled with the high quality donated goods Tenovus is renowned for.”

The new shop will not only help to generate vital funds for the work Tenovus does to support cancer patients and their families across Wales, but will also act as a place where people can find out more about cancer support services available to them in and around their community.

The shop, located at 3 Roath Park Hall, Bangor Street, close to Albany and Wellfield Roads, will be opened  on Saturday 8th December by Tenovus Natural Beauty Queen, Sharon Gardener.

Tenovus are always looking for more clothing, so come along from 10am and bring any unwanted items to the shop when you visit. If you would like to get involved by volunteering in any of their shops across Wales visit their website here.
