Have your say

A NEW charity shop in Sheffield was opened by the Lord Mayor.

Annie’s Allsorts, in Richmond, is the fourth Annie’s charity shop in South Yorkshire, and was officially opened by Lord Mayor Coun Sylvia Dunkley.

Money raised at the shop will go to Annie’s Orphans, a charity set up by Rev Pauline Edwards in 1997.

The charity provides financial support to orphans and widows in India, Eastern Europe and Africa.

Rev Edwards, a pastor from the Pentecostal church in Bangor, North Wales, set up the charity after a trip to India and seeing the number of people asking for her help.

The charity shops in Sheffield and 14 others in the UK sell a range of products, from clothing to furniture.

The other three South Yorkshire stores are in Aston, and are called Annie’s Place, Annie’s Store and Annie’s Attic.

Manager Sue Campsill was also at the opening.
