A charity shop which had to relocate due to needing more room is opening the doors to its newest store this week. 

East Anglian Children's Hospices (EACH) is opening a new shop in the former NatWest Bank in Felixstowe, on the corner of Hamilton Road and York Road.

The NatWest bank closed down in September 2017, claiming the closure was due to a sharp reduction in the number of transactions in the coastal town.

The charity has moved from a smaller site across the road, which it occupied since 2012.

The new shop will open in York Road in Felixstowe on Thursday, June 20. 

Sarah Throssell, EACH's head of retail central operations, said: “We’re delighted and looking forward to building a bigger, better and brighter community shop for Felixstowe.

“The old shop has served a purpose and been our home since opening in 2012.

“However, as we’ve got bigger and our organisation has expanded, it feels like we’ve outgrown it.

“We needed to move and our new home is perfect."
