Voluntary non-profit business donates to charity
A new antiques and collectables shop has been established in Woy Woy as a voluntary non-profit business.
The business is run solely by volunteers and donates a percentage of sales to a different local charity every month.
Store manager Mr Mitchell Gordon said he and two others established the business to support local charities through the coronavirus pandemic.
Three other volunteers are also currently involved.
He said he previously had experience running pop-up shops for the Fairhaven charity in Point Clare.
They had proved successful and were the model for this business, which has a permanent shop in Deepwater Plaza.
Antiques and Collectables specialised in affordable retro items and unusual vintage collectables, he said.
"We donate a percentage of sales to a different local charity each month and Brisbane Water Rotary Club was our first," Mr Gordon said.
"We presented the newly-formed service club with $700 in July."
A second donation of a similar amount was made to the RSPCA last week.
Its next donation will be to the Brisbane Water Historical Society.
Woy Woy Antiques and Collectables is located at shops 52 and 53 Deepwater Plaza, Woy Woy.
