Monday 17th August 2020, NCBI (National Council for the Blind of Ireland) is delighted to celebrate the further expansion of its retail chain with the official opening of its new store in Dunboyne, Co. Meath with the help of local Dunboyne resident and former Taoiseach, John Bruton on Saturday 15th August 2020.
NCBI is proud to now have 114 shops across the country and continues to be the second largest charity shop chain in the country. NCBI’s chain of shops play a vital and integral part in the charity’s overall fundraising efforts, allowing the national sight loss agency to provide vital life changing services to over 6,700 people each year, many of whom live in Meath.
Rosie Henson, Head of Retail said; “Opening this shop is a fantastic step forward for NCBI. We have transformed what has become the norm for NCBI stores throughout the country and with this new look I hope the NCBI store will become a cornerstone of the community as it has in so many other communities across the country. The shop will sell quality preloved clothing, accessories, and hidden gems. NCBI is proud to play a part in promoting environmentally friendly practices through recycling. So, by supporting our shops, customers not only generate funds for our services but also support our drive for more sustainable fashion and furniture.
We urge shoppers to pop in and see what is on offer but also to feel free to donate any clothes or unwanted gifts. All donations are gratefully received.”
