A CHARITY shop which was forced to close after flood damage has re-opened, raising over £400 in the first two hours.
The Rowans Hospice shop in High Street, Bishop’s Waltham had been shut since the beginning of November, following a heavy rain storm which blocked drains around the premises, leaving the shop in ruins.
But yesterday it finally re-opened to the public.
Vanessa Gilding, trading manager, said: ‘It’s absolutely fantastic to be back. There have been plenty of smiling customers and many saying that they had been waiting for us to open to bring donations down.’
