Today is a special day for Hope Rescue and it wouldn't have been possible without the generous help and support we've received along the way.
We'd firstly like to thank Rhondda Cynon Taf Council for their generous funding, without which this wouldn't have been possible. Thank you to the Council officers for their encouragement and ongoing support with the refurbishment, in particular Kerry Vicker, Graham Middleton and Esther Davies. Thank you to the amazing project team; 1010 Architects, Highland Services, ASR Projects, Burningred, D&S Signs Ltd and Lumber Construction for transforming our shop into what has quickly become known as "the poshest shop in Ponty". Thank you to our new Retail Manager Katy Scourfield and Deputy Manager Rebecca Wall and of course our amazing team of volunteers for your continued hard work.
And finally, a huge thank you to you - whether you've donated, adopted, fostered or just visited us - for supporting us along this journey.
Early reports from the shop are that it is very busy today and everyone is really complimentary about the new look, the amazing design and the quality of the stock. What a great start to this new chapter in retail for us!
