The British Red Cross charity shop in Warminster has launched a new scheme to raise money for Grenfell Tower victims.

The shop on Three Horseshoes Walk has started launched the Shop for Grenfell scheme by selling excess clothes in order to raise funds for London Fire Relief and those affected by the disaster.

The British Red Cross has now collected enough excess stock to fill 40,000 boxes, 107 lorries or three football pitches, which will now be sold and added to the £5.2 million the charity has already raised for the cause.

Jane Guttenberg, manager of the Warminster shop, said: “Our shoppers are always very generous but the Grenfell fire has touched people everywhere and I’m glad we can do our bit to help.

"I hope our friends in the town will come into the shop and buy the London Fire Relief Fund stock knowing that they will be helping those left suffering after the Grenfell Tower fire.”

The charity has also co-ordinated similar retail fundraisers after the Nepal earthquake and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, however the scale of stock donations for Grenfell is greater than anything they have carried out before.

Shoppers in Warminster are being encouraged to have a browse of the new stock, and do their bit for the Grenfell Tower victims.

The British Red Cross shop is located at 24 Three Horseshoes Walk in Warminster, and is open from 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday.
