Bay Search and Rescue revealed its brand new charity shop the public today (September 23).

Opened at 11am by Mayor of Kendal, Councillor Julia Dunlop, the third store will run alongside the charity's other stores in Grange and Milnthorpe.

Located at 59 Highgate, its opening hours will be between 11am-4pm Monday to Saturday with  volunteers still needed to help with donations and to work on the till.

The doors opened to reveal an array of clothing, jewellery, accessories, ornaments, books, games and lots more. 

So far, the new store has been very well-received by the public.

Bay Search and Rescue team member Abigail said: "The day went very well and the new shop was very well-received.

"The customers seemed very happy and impressed with everything we have here. Many people remarked how nice the shop looked with one woman comparing it to a boutique.

"It's been a very busy day and we're very grateful to everyone who came down for our first day." 

Bay Search and Rescue is an independent rescue charity and a local quicksand, flood and snow rescue. The volunteer service supports all the emergency services in Cumbria and north Lancashire and, when required, offers specialist skills and equipment.
