Gwent’s first Cancer Research Wales shop to open

Cancer Research Wales is asking the people of Chepstow and the surrounding area to support our life-changing work by donating quality items and shopping at our new store in the town

Opening on Saturday 25 May at 10.00am, the Chepstow store will be the first Cancer Research Wales shop to open in Gwent.

Chepstow’s Mayor, Councillor Tudor Griffiths, is to be the guest of honour at the opening and he will be cutting the ribbon at our new store at 21 High Street.

It will be decked out in Cancer Research Wales’s distinctive coloured stripe branding which is inspired by DNA sequencing gels used by scientists.

The store will sell top-quality goods including women’s, children’s and men’s clothing, a range of household items and bric-a-brac.

It will also provide job and volunteering opportunities for local people.

Welcoming Cancer Research Wales to Chepstow, Councillor Tudor Griffiths, the Mayor of Chepstow said:

“I’m delighted to welcome this new shop to our dynamic High Street, and in this way to support a Welsh charity in its significant work which potentially benefits us all.”

Lorraine Boyd, Head of Retail at Cancer Research Wales said:

“We’re very excited to be coming to Chepstow with its rich and fascinating history and heritage and look forward to our colourful stripe-branded shop becoming a familiar and loved landmark in the town.

“Please come and support us when we open on 25 May and help us to fund our important work by donating your pre-loved goods, shopping with us or volunteering your time.”
