"Although we have had to close this store, our boutique store, also in Market Street, will continue to trade.

"We welcome all our shoppers to visit our boutique store or our other stores across Northamptonshire.”

Hannah added: “Alternatively, people can still support the charity through shopping or donating via the website.”

Since the store opened, total sales have generated over £1.7m, which equates to 1,000 potentially lifesaving missions. The store also received more than 17,000 generous donations.
