Prama Charity Shop Opening in the Heart of Westbourne
Updated: Jul 18
On 31st July 2023, Prama will be opening their doors of the new Charity Shop on July 31st at 10 am, in the heart of Westbourne.
The new Prama Charity Shop will be located at 61 Seamoor Rd, Westbourne, Bournemouth.
Aaron Head, Head of Retail said:
"Charities are facing the same challenges with the national cost of living crisis that we all are. It’s vital for our work, supporting older people locally that we fundraise through our charity shops and use the proceeds from our PramaCare domiciliary services to deliver our brilliant services. From clubs and groups for older people and their carers, specific support for those with dementia, to helping people settle at home after a hospital stay on behalf of the NHS, we are finding demand for our work is growing daily."
Prama is a Dorset based Charity, which supports hundreds of older people at home, and in the local community through its expanding range of PramaLife community groups and Telephone Support Groups to older people, those with Dementia and their carers across BCP and the wider area in East and North Dorset.
We have noticed the issue of rising costs throughout charity shops across Dorset, from both our customers and online reviews. Our Charity Shops have implemented a unique pricing structure, offering low pricing regardless of brands, meaning that we sell more items, and our very happy shoppers get to bag more bargains!
"For us, it’s all about location! When we look at new locations it has to be easy for people to donate, we love our new Westbourne site because you can just drive around to the back of the shop, and drop off your donations. We are so grateful to everyone who donates clothes, electrical's and furniture to our charity, our shops are reliant on people being generous and thinking about Prama Charity shops when they are having a clear out, if its just a couple of books, or a full house clearance we are always happy to accept donations."
