I've decided to ignore some recent advice regarding employment as a traffic warden and have instead continued at the coalface of the charity shop thereby enabling the not so charitable charity to make a total of nine thousand pounds available for use by local groups, schools and community projects here in South Woodham Ferrers since the first of April this year.
I will continue to ask for the help and understanding of donors regarding the times when goods can be safely accepted and quarantined via the tent in the rear yard behind Warwick Parade. as well as seeking the cooperation of customers to keep the dedicated group of volunteers without whose help the shop could not operate safe.
So, although the use of face masks in enclosed spaces, including shops and offices is no longer compulsory the trustees of Mister Gees Foundation would like all customers and staff to continue wearing face coverings when entering or working in the shop for the foreseeable future.
Although most of our staff have had both doses of vaccine, many are still vulnerable and consequently this decision has been taken in order to safeguard them and our valued customers as much as possible whilst the high risk of infection from the Delta variant of this Pandemic continues.
Please do not enter the shop if you are unwell and have any Covid-19 symptoms..
Lastly the latest financial reports up to and including July the 18th can be read here on the website.
