A CHARITY shop in Llanidloes is set to close for good after the cornonavirus pandemic restrictions made it “no longer viable” for it to remain in the town.

Powys Animal Welfare was forced to close in March due to restrictions being put in place.

The charity has accepted donations at its Long Bridge Street shop for the last 15 years, but has been put under pressure by the coronavirus lockdown.

Janine Wilbraham, shop volunteer, said: “Due to Covid-19 restrictions the shop Powys Animal Welfare Llanidloes is no longer viable and with great regret we have made very difficult decision to close.”

The charity shop will close its doors for the final time on September 6.

“Once we are allowed we will open until then but for now you can purchase if you see anything you want,” Janine added.

The charity is asking people not to leave donations at the shop door as they need to clear the shop before vacating in September.

Powys Animal Welfare shops in Newtown and Welshpool will remain open for people wishing to continue to contribute to the charity.
