RBAir and Castle School Community Shop Opening Day Success

Opening Day Success

Red Ballon of the Air had their opening event for their community shop on Tuesday, 10th of October, and it was a massive success!

‘We had quite a few people stop and ask about Red Balloon and what we do, and had a few people in need of our services so the event had a two-pronged purpose for us,’ said Christina Smith, Assistant Headteacher. ‘It was a fantastic way to network with parents who see a need for our provision, and also paved the way for our young people to get a supported work experience.’

Although profit is important, with an impressive £160 taken in just four hours, the most valuable aspect of the day was the work experience for the students. Not only is RBAir providing well-priced clothing and goods to an area that really needs it, but it’s also an opportunity for locals to donate to a worthy cause. The shop is a place for connection in the local area, and we can’t wait to see how things progress next week!

Weekly opening hours

Tuesdays during term time 10am- 2pm

RBAir will be in the shop weekly during term time on Tuesdays from 10am to 2pm, so you can pay us a visit during these times to support RBAir and our students in their work experience placements.

Or you can pop in on other term-time weekdays between 10am and 2pm when Castle School are running the shop!
