A CHARITY which helps stroke victims has opened its first shop in Sheffield.

Shoppers can help support the Stroke Association by visiting its new store in Charles Street, in the city centre, as 100 per cent of profits will be put back into funding its work across the UK. The shop will also have access to information for stroke survivors, their families and carer.

Clive Betts, Labour MP for Sheffield South East, was invited to the official launch to cut the ribbon and declare the store open for business.

Fran Costigan, of the association, said: “The vision is to establish a successful first retail outlet in Sheffield and then expand to other towns and cities.”
