Haywards Heath town mayor Sandy Ellis has opened a new Scope charity shop in South Road.

The charity uses the money raised by its 250 charity shops to fund its important work supporting disabled children, adults and their families.

There are 17.6 million individuals who live in a family where someone is disabled, and 1.6 million live in a family with at least one disabled child. Scope provides support, advice and information to more than a quarter of a million people every year.

The new Haywards Health shop, which was opened by councillor Ellis on Friday, February 7, will also provide local people with the chance to volunteer, socialise and learn new skills.
