Charity shops closed Latest update: 22th March 2020 Following Government guidance on increased social distancing Guild Care has taken the difficult decision to close all our charity shops with immediate effect. We would like to thank the public, our staff and volunteers for all the hard work and effort they have put in over the last few weeks to ensure that we have been able, up until this point, to continue to trade safely. Guild Care supports some of the most vulnerable in our community and we are committed to maintaining as many of our services as we possibly can during these unprecedented times. We are only able to do the work we do, as a result of the support of our local community, particularly through your donations of both cash and goods to our charity shops. As you can imagine the financial impact of these closures is significant and in the longer term likely to impact on our ability to deliver services, however at this time we have to consider the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, beneficiaries and shoppers over and above any financial loss. We would like at this time to say thank you for your support and understanding and to ask that you continue to support us in the future in any way that you are able.
