The new Tenovus charity shop opens in Roath Park Hall on Bangor Street on Saturday December 8.

Cancer charity Tenovus will open a new shop in a converted church hall in Roath tomorrow.

The hall, on the site of the old Roath Park Methodist Church on Bangor Street, had been empty for more than 25 years before it was converted into two shops, with a flat upstairs.

Tenovus’ head of retail and community fundraising Tim Finch said: “We are delighted to be opening this new shop in such a fantastic and unique location. We hope the community of Roath will support our new shop, which will be filled with the high quality donated goods Tenovus is renowned for.”

The shop will be opened on Saturday morning at 10am by Tenovus’ Natural Beauty Queen Sharon Gardner, and people are invited to come along and have a look around. Donations of clothing will also be gratefully accepted.

As well as raising funds for the work Tenovus does to support cancer patients and their families across Wales, the new shop will also be somewhere people can find out more about the cancer support services available in their community.

To get involved in volunteering in any of Tenovus’ shops, visit the charity’s website.

    Yet another charity shop. Tenovus has a shop on Albany Road, literally a 5min walk away from this location. There must be 20 + charity shops within a 200m stretch. Cardiff Council needs to address this issue before our high streets completely disappear. Small businesses have to pay business rates that charity shops are exempt from, hence they are able to monopolise empty locations. Albany road has become nothing but pawn, bookmakers, gambling, charity and cash-for-gold shops. This needs to be addressed and 'saturation' limits imposed before every street in Cardiff ends the same way.
