The store in Merthyr Road will open between 9.30am and 4:30pm on Tuesday and will be open each week Tuesday to Saturday between 9.30am and 4.30pm. 

Following government guidelines, anyone over the age of 11 will be required to wear a face covering in the Whitchurch charity shop, apart from those who have an exemption from wearing them.  

The Charity’s Joint Head of Retail, Rhys Richards, said: “We have gradually opened our charity shops throughout Wales and are delighted to be able to reopen the doors of our Whitchurch store. All Wales Air Ambulance 12 charity shops across Wales are now operational. Our shops that have already opened are doing extremely well and we hope the Whitchurch store will be just as successful. 

“We’d like to thank our customers for their patience in waiting for the store to reopen. Without you, our lifesaving service would not exist.”  

The lifesaving charity is currently looking for volunteers for its Whitchurch store, if you can

spare any of your free time it would be much appreciated. To find out more information about volunteering in the charity shop email Volunteer Coordinator Sandra Hembery via sandrahembery@walesairambulance.com

Wales Air Ambulance offers advanced critical care and is often described as a ‘Flying ED’.

The on-board consultants and critical care practitioners are highly skilled and carry some of the most pioneering medical equipment in the world. They can deliver blood transfusions, administer anaesthesia and undertake emergency operations at the scene of the incident, before flying the patient directly to specialist care.  

There are several ways that the public can continue to support the Wales Air Ambulance.

These include online donations, signing up to the Charity’s Lifesaving Lottery or by coming up with their own innovative ways to fundraise at home. Further information can be found via www.walesairambulance.com. 

Alternatively, a £5 text-message donation can be made by texting the word HELI to 70711.
