RYE charity ARRCC now has a shop in Rye at 7 Cinque Ports Street.
The shop was officially opened last Thursday by Rye county councillor Keith Glazier.
As well as raising funds for the ARRCC respite and care centre, the shop will also aid other local charities and good causes.
Irna Mortlock, from ARRCC said: “ We are delighted to be the first charity shop locally to be able to give back to the community.
“The shop relies solely on donations, and welcomes volunteers.”
