Today’s Advent Calendar opens a window for The Daylight Shop at 2 Cambridge Street, Wellingborough. They are your local charity shop selling an array of goods, preloved and recycled for your enjoyment. They have a great selection of vinyls and cds; books and clothes. Their bric-a-brac section is a treasure trove waiting to be explored.
All proceeds from the shop go to keeping the Daylight Centre open for the homeless and vulnerable, providing a place for a shower, a meal, and advice. It also means that the Wellingborough Foodbank is able to provide food parcels for those on universal credit, homeless and unemployed.
The Daylight Centre Fellowship is an independent local charity in Wellingborough. They strive to help people in Wellingborough and the surrounding districts of North Northamptonshire in meeting personal challenges that range from complex mental health issues, drug and alcohol abuse, learning difficulties, to homelessness or just feeling fragile, isolated and alone.
Wellingborough Foodbank is one of the Daylight Centre’s services, and is designed to help individuals and families in Wellingborough and District who are in crisis. The aim of the Foodbank is to provide people in proven need with basic food and other essential items for a short time until the crisis is resolved or until the appropriate agencies are in a position to assist.
The food which they distribute is donated by many individuals and local organisations; churches, temples and mosques, schools, the public at supermarkets, local businesses and other local groups.
The Daylight Shop is open Tuesday Wednesday Friday and Saturday from 8.30 until 4pm. All donations are gratefully received. Pop in in for a bargain!
