We have unveiled our first Leicestershire charity shop, located in Loughborough town centre.

The doors opened to the public on Wednesday 16 September after a ribbon cutting by Sue Disley, Chair of Vista Trustees. 

This is our second charity shop, with our first opening in Oakham over summer. The shops sell high quality donated goods including clothing, books and bric-a-brac, and also stock a selection of assistive technology for people with sight loss, such as large button telephones and talking clocks.

Penny Bailey, Loughborough Shop Manager, said “This is a really exciting venture for Vista and I’m pleased to be a part of it. The shop is in a great location, on the Cattle Market next to the cinema."

“We are on the lookout for enthusiastic and committed volunteers to join our team, whether it’s sorting out donated stock, serving the customers, helping with window and shop displays, or adding value to items by upcycling.

“If you have an interest in shop work, a passion for fashion, love music, bric-a-brac or books, are into up-cycling, or want to work in retail, we would love to hear from you.”
