By Phyl Winchcombe, Senior Church Warden & Op-Shop Coordinator
Our Op-Shop started out...
on the Church Verandah in the Year 2000 and what a great start to the new millennium for St George’s!
In our first day of trading the Op-Shop made $157.00 which was a fantastic effort given we were working from a couple of tables outside the Church.
Skip forward a very relatively short period of time, and in 2010 the Church was fortunate to be able to expand and develop a purpose-built, on-site shop to continue the fabulous efforts of our volunteers.
Since its inception the Op-Shop has been a hub of activity. It is a place where local community members are always treated with respect and are a non-judged face; a place where they find a sense of belonging through volunteering efforts, having a chat with other community members and of course finding a bargain! We welcome everyone with a warm, friendly smile.
We also provide:
- Material items and goods to assist in our Emergency Relief efforts to local families
- Clothing to overseas mission projects
- Goods for Indigenous communities in the Northwest of WA
We value what our Op-Shop brings to the local community of Dunsborough, and its success to the St George’s Anglican community.
The Op-Shop is open all year round, we hope to see you soon.
