HIGH PEAK Mayor David Lomax officially opened Buxton’s newest shop at the weekend.

Little Blessings, on Spring Gardens, has been set up by the charity Choices - Derbyshire and all profits will go to support their work providing free pregnancy counselling, support for pregnant mothers and new parents, as well as pregnancy loss counselling for miscarriage, termination or stillbirth.

The shop will be run by volunteers and provide savings on new and nearly new maternity and children’s items.

Heather Woodward, manager of Choices - Derbyshire, said: “As a pregnancy charity, we wanted to do something practical to support expectant mothers and young families by providing maternity and children’s wear and baby equipment at low cost, without compromising on quality.”

Donations of maternity and children’s clothes for ages 0-10, baby equipment, toys, books and nursery items are needed by the charity and can be dropped at the shop at 111 Spring Gardens between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Collection can be arranged for larger items.

Volunteers who can spare at least two hours a week to help in the shop are also needed. If you can help, call shop manager Caroline Gaunt on 01298 22388.
