A wildlife trust has appealed for donations after opening up a new charity shop.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust launched the store in Birches Bridge, Codsall, on Wolverhampton Road.

It follows a charity shop opening in Leek, in 2015, while another was launched in Penkridge last year, making the trust the first to have opened three such stores.

Money raised helps support the charity’s 30 nature reserves along with other conservation work and education projects around the subject.

The Codsall branch had been scheduled to open in April but the opening was delayed due to coronavirus, with it finally opening on Tuesday.

Items sale will include pre-loved clothes, books, DVDs and games, as well as new additions.

Maryjoy Jones, retail cluster manager for the trust, said: “We are excited to become part of the shopping scene in Codsall and opening our new shop there.

"We hope people in the area like this new venture and we are looking forward to meeting our new customers very soon.


"We’d like to thank everyone for bearing with us as we were originally meant to be opening in April.”

The shop will open between 9am to 4pm daily, with coronavirus safety measures in place.

Volunteers are also needed to help run the store. Email Maryjoy Jones on
