Blackpool RSPCA opens fifth shop

Have your say

The RSPCA’s Blackpool branch has opened a new shop, in Knott End.

The Blackpool & North Lancs branch of the charity now runs five charity shops run by employed managers and a team of volunteers.

The Knott End shop has opened its doors on Lancaster Road, thanks to advice from Gareth Birch, solicitor in the Commercial Property team at Blackpool law firm Napthens who negotiated the deal on behalf of the trustees.

Napthens has worked for the RSPCA branch for three years. The branch also operates an animal centre on Division Lane in Blackpool but a replacement, state-of-the-art facility is being built in Stalmine, Over Wyre.
