LEADING South Yorkshire dementia charity Lost Chord is set to launch its first shop.
The organisation that provides vital interactive musical experiences for people living with dementia is care homes and day centres across the region has secured retail premises in Rotherham town centre.
And now the charity is beginning a recruitment search for an experienced shop manager, ready for a September opening.
“Obviously, the person we are looking for will need to have full retail experience as they will be working on setting the shop up and then be responsible for its day to day running and for the appointment and supervision of the volunteers who will work there,” said Lost Chord Chief Executive Helena Muller.
“This is the perfect opportunity for a real self starter who is also wanting to make a difference to our organisation.
“This is an exciting time for us and one that will make an enormous difference to our year-round fundraising efforts, with all the money raised going towards our programme of events tailored specifically to the needs of people living with dementia.”
The charity is also now accepting donations of clothing, household items, bric-a-brac, books, DVDs and CDs for sale in the shop.
“Obviously, the more stock we have, the greater our chances of succeeding,” said Helena.
“If you’re thinking of having a spring clean, then please do think of Lost Chord and bring your unwanted items to our office at the Wesley Centre in Maltby.
“We want to make sure that we have fully stocked shelves when we welcome our first customers!”
