St George’s Crypt, a Leeds-based homeless charity based at St George’s Leeds, is opening a fully refurbished shop in Armley.

The grand opening is taking place on Saturday, February 24 at 9am.

Refreshments of tea and cake will be provided, and the ribbon will be cut by a special guest speaker.

St. George's. Crypt has three Preloved shops; Pudsey, Roundhay and Armley, and are excited to reveal the refurbishment of our Armley Shop.  

Natasha Morosini, Head of Retail at St. George’s Crypt said: “We are extremely excited to show our newly refurbished shop off to the Armley community, and honoured to have a special guest to officially open it.

“The Armley team have worked extremely hard to refill the shop back up after the building work.

“It’s looking fantastic and is full of lovely items.”

When asked about the importance of the shops Natasha said: “Our retail shops are vital in raising funds for the Crypt, to enable them to provide the services they do to clients.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone back in and continue to support St George’s Crypt.”

Chris Fields, CEO of St George’s Crypt, said: “Our retail shops don't just sell high-quality goods to help local communities but also offer chances for individuals transitioning from homelessness to independence.

“Clients on our development and recovery projects are offered volunteering opportunities that enable them to acquire job skills and can act as stepping stones towards independence.  

“Our shops combine several functions, all contributing to and underpinning the organisation’s mission of rehabilitation and well-being for our clients.

“Foremostly the aim of changing lives in the city.”

St George’s Crypt in Leeds is a Christian charity which has been working to providing hope and support for the hundreds who access the charity’s services every week since the founder Don Robins first opened the doors in 1930 and welcomed people into the Crypt.
