Shelter Scotland is set to open a new shop in Milngavie.

The store, on Douglas Street where James Allan bakers used to be, will open on Friday, August 31.

Milngavie and Bearsden residents are being urged to donate unwanted items to the charity shop.

Graeme Brown, Director of Shelter Scotland, said: “Our hope is that our Milngavie shop will be well received by our existing dedicated customers and attract new ones to help us raise vital funds at a time when funding for our national and local services is being cut.

“It costs just £10 for one of our expert advisors to help a family or individual at risk of losing their home – we can raise that money by selling an unwanted jumper or pair shoes. £45 is enough to train an advisor to protect children at risk, which could be raised from selling an unwanted winter coat that’s taking up space in someone’s wardrobe.

“We hope that the people of Milngavie will continue to support Shelter Scotland, because without their help and generosity our fight to end bad housing and homelessness would be so much harder.”
