Forthcoming blessing at St Vincent’s Charity Superstore, Armley

By Ivor Hughes

St Vincent’s latest charity shop in Leeds opened last July. Truly a giant of a charity shop with 300 square metres of floor space, it is located in Unit 4 of Centre West Retail Park on Stanningley Road.

To celebrate its success and presence in the community, the Armley superstore is inviting people to join them at 11am on Wednesday, 15 February for a blessing conducted by Father Philip Hall of St Benedict’s in Garforth. Refreshments provided.
