Charity shop to open in former Lincoln bakery

A new Age UK charity shop will open inside a former bakery in Lincoln city centre in June.

The new Lincoln shop will be located on Guildhall Street in the unit formerly occupied by The Ticklebelly Lane Bakery and Tea House, which was put back on the market in October 2018 just a year after opening.

Age UK Lincoln and South Lincolnshire confirmed it hopes to open the new shop in June, but an exact date has yet to be finalised.

Four jobs will be create across two sites – Lincoln and Boston – with the charity hoping to have 19 volunteers at each shop.

Age UK Lincoln and South Lincolnshire operates as an independent local charity and a new store opened in Boston just last week on Friday, May 24.

The charity relies on donations and fundraising support from the public and local businesses. The recent opening day in Boston was a big success with around 300 customers.
