Op shop must go

THE $7 million Federal Government Super Clinic to be built at Goonellabah has forced the Anglican Op Shop into a search for new premises.

The op shop in the Rous Road shopping centre has contributed $200,000 to local charities and provided cheap clothing for needy local families for 20 years.

With its lease expiring, the last day of trading will be next Tuesday and it has to be out of the premises by April 30.

Anglican Op Shop chairman Geoff Cawley said the 50 volunteers were proud that none of the money raised had gone into church funds.

"We have made donations to the North Coast Children's Home, The Buttery drug rehabilitation centre, Lismore Soup Kitchen, Heartfelt House, the church's parish pantry for needy families, religious education in high schools and university chaplaincy," he said.

The Rous Road shopping centre owners have provided space for storage for the op shop while the search for new premises continues.
