A charity pop-up shop will open in the Nicholsons Centre this weekend in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Louise Pamment, 30, decided to run a community project to raise awareness and raise money for the trust.
The SportsAble volunteer was born with the genetic condition which causes her lungs and digestive system to become clogged up with mucus.
The shop will open opposite Tesco from Saturday until Monday, May 2.
Louise said: “We’ve got a silent auction, a craft table for the kids, tombola and lots of items to buy.
People have been very generous and I’ve had lots of things donated to me to sell, and stores have lent us tables, chairs, hangers, rails and prizes for the auction.
The community is coming together which is what I wanted. I wanted a community project and I’ve already achieved that so any money I make is a bonus.”
Louise is also looking to borrow a mannequin, a steam iron and a circular rail for the store.
