Helicopter op-shop to open in Tenterfield

TENTERFIELD residents will have a new place to buy pre-owned and pre-loved items this week while helping to support the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

Thanks to the support of volunteers and the community, the helicopter service will open its newest Helicopter Op Shop on Friday.

The doors will be open for eager shoppers from 9am at the shop at 91 High St and close at 4pm.

The helicopter’s fundraising manager, Zeke Huish, said everyone was welcome to come and find a bargain or donate items to help raise support for the region’s rescue helicopter service.

“We’ve been so fortunate to find a great location in town and have people register to become volunteers to help run the shop,” Mr Huish said.

“The Tenterfield community has a strong appreciation for the rescue helicopter service and we can’t thank everyone in the region enough for helping to make this new shop possible.”

To find out more the shop can be contacted from Friday onwards on 6736 5820.
