Armani and DKNY are just a couple of the designer labels that have already flown out of the door of a new Leeds charity shop since it opened yesterday

Calendar presenter and Martin House Children’s Hospice ambassador Christine Talbot opened the Wetherby store, on Market Place, along with Town Councillor Harry Chapman, Mayor of Wetherby.

All money raised from the shop will go to the Boston Spa hospice, which has running costs of around £4.9m a year.

The charity’s spokeswoman said: “They are getting quite a lot of nice, designer things dropped off for them to sell – but obviously they go really quickly.”

More volunteers are still needed. Ring Rachel at Martin House on 01937 845045.
