The National Council for the Blind Ireland (NCBI) is delighted to open Munster’s only dedicated children’s charity shop on William Street, Limerick.

The store will be selling pre-loved clothes, buggies, cots and toys that are in good condition.

They are also looking for donations of such items that they can then sell on in the shop and raise funds for the charity.

Karen Meagher, Area Manager South West said “We are delighted to open a shop specifically to meet the needs of children. By supporting our NCBI shops, customers not only generate funds for our services including those dedicated to children and young people with sight loss but also our drive to support the environment through the re-use and recycling of fashion and furniture. With the run up to Christmas this shop couldn’t be opening at a better time.

“We hope the NCBI store will become a cornerstone of the community as it has in so many other communities across the country. We are heartened to see the ongoing growth of our stores which in turn enable us to offer a suite of services to those who are blind or visually impaired.” she added.

NCBI is the national sight loss organisation, working for people with sight loss.

They provide practical and emotional support, rehabilitation services and other training designed to help people with sight loss to live independently and confidently.
