The Vale of Glamorgan Council leader learnt more about the work of a charity with a visit to their new shop in Penarth.

Cllr Lis Burnett recently visited the Marie Curie shop on Windsor Road.

The visit was part of the charity’s annual fundraising effort, the Great Daffodil Appeal.

Cllr Burnett learnt about Marie Curie's work across South Wales and in the Cardiff and Vale Hospice in Penarth, including methods the community can use to support.

Cllr Lis Burnett said: "The work Marie Curie do is needed now more than ever.

"That is why I am encouraging people across the whole of South Wales to show their support for this unique charity shop in any way that they can.

"Every donation means that when the time comes Marie Curie can be there for people and their loved ones when they need it most."

Tomos Evans of Marie Curie, said: "Thank you to Cllr Lis Burnett for taking the time to visit our ‘Gift that Matters’ pop-up shop.

"This is a shop like no other where you can buy essential items to help support terminally ill people and their families and carers.

"Everything you buy goes straight to those who need it most."

The 'Gift That Matters' shop will be open until March 24.
