A charity has submitted a planning application to erect new signage at a retail outlet on Water Lane.
Salvation Army Trading Company Ltd have also applied to decorate the shop front at 16 Water Lane in black with contrasting red handles to enable them to open a clothing accessories boutique in the premises which were previously occupied by the East women's clothes shop which closed in June as the company went into administration on Monday, 22nd June.
The shop will sell quality donated goods including clothes, accessories, bric-a-brac and household goods. Profits from the shop are gift-aided to The Salvation Army to help fund its work throughout the UK. Homeless shelters, substance misuse centres and family tracing services are just some of the services The Salvation Army delivers.
Over the last five years alone, donations have allowed them to present over £35 million to The Salvation Army which has gone towards its work with people who are vulnerable or in need.
