We are delighted to share with you ‘Trysorau’ our Friends of Portfield School charity shop at 2 Old Bridge, Haverfordwest.
In December 2016 Friends of Portfield School opened the doors to their very own charity shop, Trysorau. The pupils have been very much involved in the whole process from choosing the name to assisting with the design of the shop. The shop provides pupils with work experience and opportunities to meet, socialise and develop their skills to be more able to access the job market. The pupils are gaining real life experiences, handling money, customer service, organisational skills, creative skills, team work and housekeeping. The impact on this has increased their confidence and given them valuable transferable skills.
Not only are the pupils of Portfield benefiting, we provide older people within the community and the parents/carers of our pupils the opportunity to volunteer in the shop, which has been a huge help and has enabled us to extend our opening hours.
We were fortunate to secure £4,208 from the Caring Communities Innovation Grant which has been used to cover the start-up costs, and due to the generosity of the community with donations, we are able to continue to keep the shop open and continue the fantastic work experience for our pupils, staff, parents, carers and older people in our community.
If you are interested in volunteering then please contact the school on 01437 762701.
Donations can be dropped off at Portfield School or the shop.
