Arundel Post Office pledges support for Chestnut Tree House charity shop over two years

Arundel postmaster Paul Money has pledged support for the Chestnut Tree House charity shop in the town over the next two years.

Mr Money, who owns and runs Arundel Post Office, was keen to support the children’s hospice and thought what better way than to help the nearby charity shop.

He is a great supporter of the team and knows the staff and volunteers. He offered to provide something towards the running of the shop over the next two years and it was agreed that for the first year, his donation would fund a new laptop.

Maryanne Mills, shop manager, said: “We really needed something to replace our bulky desktop. The new laptop will make a huge difference in terms of convenience and has also come at just the right time to support us with our new till system.

“We would like to say a very big thank to you Paul from the Arundel Post Office for his support for a fellow local business.”

The charity shop at 5 Crown Yard Mews opened in 2002 and has been raising funds towards providing care for children and young people with life-shortening conditions and support for their families.

It stocks high-quality clothing and accessories, small pieces of furniture, small electrical items, books and vinyl.
