A charity shop in Kettering closed its doors for the final time on Tuesday after more than two years trading in the town.

Northamptonshire Association for the Blind opened its shop off High Street, at the top of the Wadcroft car park, in the summer of 2012 to raise funds to help the neighbouring Sight Centre.

NAB general secretary John Wood said: “It is very sad we have to move out of the premises we are currently in but the landlord wants more rent than we can afford to pay.

“We are actively trying to find another shop in Kettering town centre and ask anyone who is able to help us with this to contact us on our helpline, 01604 719193.

“We thank everyone who has supported the shop over the years.

“We also remind the local public that our sight centre will remain in its current location, open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, from 10am to 1pm for sight loss support, information and equipment.”

Kettering Sight Centre hosts a number of services and one-off events for blind and partially-sighted people, including a weekly computer club, a talking book club and a relaxation group.
