Ah February – the month of romance!
At BASIC we have lots of items with which you can charm that love of your life. Come into our shops in Hamilton Road or on Walton High Street and see if you can find a real bargain!
During January we were pleased to assist many local people in extreme need with either items from our stock or with small financial donations.
We’ve also been extremely busy with our online sales – we have around 350 items listed on Ebay at any time and around 1000 books on Amazon.
If you’re a local person and you win any of our Ebay items they can be collected from our Walton store the day after purchase and, of course, you save the postage costs!
Quite a few local people have caught on to this idea and buy absolute bargains every week!
Graham and Sarah do regular ‘live’ broadcasts on Facebook to show a selection of items which are listed – so if you use Facebook be sure to look us up at Basic Life Charity.
Both of our shops started running tombola’s before Christmas and they have proved to be so popular that we’ve carried on with them. The prizes come from our stock and we’ve made it that the chances of winning are really good with probably one ticket in three winning a prize.
Our Felixstowe shop is saving up for another lightweight wheelchair for the use of local residents.
Our Pop-Up shops at St.Edmund’s and St.Philips continue to flourish and it is lovely to see so many new faces. If you like the idea but are a little worried about coming – please come along.
There are no questions or qualifications or anything like that – you simply join the queue, pay £1 for a bag and then help yourself! Simple!
Have a great February – we look forward to seeing you!
