Charity shop open during new lockdown

Norddis (North Dorset Disability Information Service), a charity supporting the elderly, the disabled and their carers in Gillingham, is open during this second lockdown.

The Norddis shop is situated opposite Lidl and, as an essential business, is open Tuesday 10am to 4pm, Thursday 10am to 1pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm.

Treasurer Peter Yeoman said: “We are a charity which has been running for 25 years providing support to the elderly, the disabled and their carers in the north of Dorset. We have run a shop for many years selling new and used equipment to help those needing it to retain personal dignity and independent living as far as possible.”

“We are a not-for-profit charity so price goods merely to cover the costs of operating the shop and also run a hire service for short term needs.
We are a purely volunteer staffed organisation and as many of our volunteers are themselves carers, disabled or of mature age it has been difficult to maintain the shop open during the ‘lockdown’ periods.”

Peter added: “We are remaining open for part of the time during this second lockdown.”
