Lifesaving charity closes Nuneaton store

The Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA) is encouraging its loyal Warwickshire shoppers to continue supporting the vital service after closing the doors to its charity store in Nuneaton.

Every day of the year, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance is saving lives. Its crew are available 24/7, 365 days a year to deliver lifesaving critical care at road traffic collisions, sports events, medical emergencies – such as cardiac arrest and accidents at home – and other incidents needing expert pre-hospital medical interventions.

Since December 2011, the charity has enjoyed strong support for its boutique store located on Bridge Street, however due to circumstances beyond the charity’s control, it sadly closed its doors on Saturday 22 July 2023.

“We’d like to thank our loyal customers for their support at our Nuneaton store. Although we have had to close this store, our other Warwickshire stores in Atherstone and Cheylesmore continue to trade. We welcome all our shoppers to visit our other stores across the county and further afield,” said WNAA Head of Retail, Hannah Coventry.

“Alternatively, people can still support the charity through shopping or donating via the website,” Hannah added.

The charity receives no government or National Lottery funding for its missions and relies entirely on voluntary donations and retail store income to raise the £1,700 needed for every mission.

Since the store opened, total sales have generated over £1,312,195.68 equating to over 770 potentially lifesaving missions. It has also received over 45,000 generous donations in-store.
