To mark 25 years of a Chatterton Road charity shop, owners will be holding a trip down memory lane with staff and volunteers past and present.
Brix was opened in 1993 by two local women, who were inspired to support Mission Care after receiving a fundraising leaflet for the rebuild of local Mission Care home, Homefield.
The leaflet asked local residents to “donate a barrowful of bricks” which led to the name of the shop.
Today, the shop goes by the name On a Mission, but it retains all of its quirky Brix charm.
Since opening, the shop has played a vital role in the community, organising and running special events to raise awareness of Mission Care.
The event will be held this Friday (July 20) at 12pm, and will include a 25pc discount off all items for one day only.
Refreshments will also be served and Geoff Deane, Mission Care’s chairman, will be welcoming guests.
