Charity shop forced to close is back with new pop up

A charity shop forced to close because of the Primark fire has made an urgent call for donations to their new pop up shop that is set to open by Christmas.

The British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland (BHF NI) shop in Castle Street, Belfast was forced to close its doors after the devastating fire.

The charity urgently searched for a new site and is set to reopen a pop up shop in Fountain Street on Thursday, December 20.

But because parts of Castle Street remain closed off, they cannot access the existing shop to collect donations and are starting the new shop from scratch.

Maureen McElhatton of BHF NI shops said they hope people will rally round.

"Anything the public can spare to help us restock our shop we will be so grateful to receive," she said.
