LAC has new charity shop

Langebaan Animal Care’s (LAC) animals will benefit a great deal from the launch of its first Charity Bargain Shop, which was officially opened to the public on Saturday 14 December.

The shop is situated two shops away from KFC at Oostewal Road in Langebaan.

Izelle Marallich, chair of LAC, said one of the biggest challenges to opening a shop was funding.

“Trying to get a steady income to pay the vet bills and food bills for all the animals we take care of is stressful and we had our fair share of challenges this year trying to raise funds,” she explained.

“After our garage sales were closed down we became so despondent, but when one door closes another opens.”

Marallich said she’s grateful to everyone who helped LAC realise its dream of opening its charity bargain shop. “From donating all your unwanted goods to helping us move all the stock and packing all the stock in the shop, we are grateful to all who helped,” she said. “Special thanks go to Ann Piscopo for making all our shelves for us and for [miscellaneous] designs and last-minute printing of signage, and everyone else who played a part in making this happen, to whom we are extremely grateful.”

LAC invites the public to visit its charity shop, where customers can buy books, while kiddies can choose toys from the children’s section.

“We also have a huge selection of original artwork on sale, and remember one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. So please donate all your unwanted goods to us.”

The public can drop off unwanted goods at the shop on Monday to Saturday between 10:30 and 17:00, or they can contact Lynette Opthoff on 060 842 2408 to collect.

“We also need volunteers to help man our shop,” Marallich said. “Only a few hours a day will be great help to us.”
