Two businesses have come together to give a Dagenham charity shop a free makeover.
The Richard House Children’s Hospice store in the Heathway is set to reopen on Tuesday following the refurbishment, which includes new lighting, flooring, shop fittings and a cash desk.
The work was carried out by integrated services provider Cofely and one of their contractors, Concept Building Services.
Brian Stanley, business development manager at Concept Building Services, said: “When approached by Cofely, it did not take much persuasion; and like Cofely we try to give back and help the wonderful and worthwhile organisations in the community.
“We hope this refurbishment will help the hospice to bring in vital funds so they can carry on doing excellent work with children and their families.”
