Star Throwers will be opening their doors to a new retail shop on Tuesday, 20th September 2022. The second retail outlet, named Star Throwers ‘Treasure Trove’, is based at the charity’s main centre (30 Melton Road, Wymondham, NR18 0DB).

The new shop, a 40ft shipping container conversion, provides customers with something a ‘little extra’ to the main shop in Middleton Street, including small pieces of furniture, vintage clothing, and electrical items for sale, in addition to other pre-loved treasures and new donations. In preparation of the shop opening, over 90 electrical items were PAT tested ready to go on display.

The new retail outlet will create additional revenue for Star Throwers to continue to provide free cancer support services.

Star Throwers Retail Shop Manager, Helen Spicer said: “I am very excited to be given this opportunity to raise even more funds for our charity. Local people have been very generous with donations and it’s an ideal way to sell some of our larger items we cannot always find space for in our Middleton Street shop”.

Star Throwers would like to thank its long-standing corporate sponsor, Pilgrim’s Food Masters for the very generous donation of the shipping container, Norwich Crown Decorating Centre for the donation of paint and supplies, as well as our contractors: Wymondham Windows and Portable Space.

Please check social media and our website for opening hours as these may change whilst finalising staff and volunteer hours. You can also look out for our open sign on the roadside Star Throwers signage at 30 Melton Road.
