Marie Curie Cancer Care in Southgate is scheduled to close at the end of January 2014 due to a decision made by those in charge of the charity.
This shop is much loved and has been around for a very long time. Of course it has suffered, as many shops have, during our recession but targets are met and the customer flow is always constant.
The manager and assistant manageress go to great lengths to create a shop that is as welcoming, interesting and easily navigated as possible. Everything is done with precision and care, with the customers always in mind, from the carefully put together window displays to the regularly updated stock.
Most of the many volunteers, myself included, have been with the shop for several years and it has become almost a small community where all ages and cultures work together for a good cause. I have met so many wonderful people through this charity, and my time there has been invaluable. It's close would be a great loss to the local community hence why this news has hit many of us hard, customers and volunteers alike.
We respect the decision to close the shop, but we do not agree with it. We want to show those in charge how much this small shop is valued, how much it will be missed and hopefully change it's fate.
Please help us by signing our petition. We would really appreciate your support!
