The site of the former Lidl supermarket on Foljambe Road in Chesterfield has been given a fresh
lease of life after being transformed into a new venue for the Salvation Army.
Having opened in December last year, the new Salvation Army building offers an array of services for the local community including a Church, community meeting area, donation center and large format charity shop.
Having briefly closed under the most recent lockdown, the venue is set to reopen again on April 12th with the charity shop offering a range of clothes, toys, furniture, electrical items and bicycles. The donation centre will also continue taking items on this date.
Services are also set to resume shortly in the church hall, having taken place over Zoom throughout the lockdown. There are regular Sunday services as well as events and meetings throughout the week.
The Salvation Army has had a presence in Chesterfield since the 1880's, though this is the first time in over 30 years they have had a dedicated premises in the town.
The Salvation Army is seeking volunteers to help with all aspects of the organisation's work, including drivers mates to help with furniture deliveries and collections.
The donation centre is looking for good quality clothing, household items, and especially bicycles and furniture as they are refurbished in the on site workshop. The venue offers on site parking for those who prefer to drop goods off by car.
