A NEW charity shop is opening in the Oxebode in Gloucester.

Sports Traider, opening in March, will recycle sports clothing and sports equipment from schools and organisations around the county and reinvest the money from the sale of the goods into getting young people into sport.

The venture is being led by Gloucester-based social enterprise Sofab Sports, whose founder Chris Rawlins said: "Coming off the back of the county's Olympic and Paralympic successes, the charity has a massive opportunity through our social enterprise project to reach local children and young people who may currently be excluded from sports for physical or financial reasons." Donation collections can be arranged on 07902 892438.

    So the answer to the question at the end of my comment from 12:46 is clearly NO... It's almost tempting to post something naughty, to see how long it takes to be moderated / removed.....

    Loving the headline. Talking of charity shops, does anyone know why the Age Uk Gloucestershire shop in Barton Street has been closed 'for refurbishment' for nearly 3 months? No refurbishment has happened yet.

    Over 5 hours since the 1st comment pointing out the duff headline, and not yet corrected. That suggests that comments aren't being read / moderated, and also suggests that the published online content also hasn't been checked since it was issued. TiG at it's finest. Or worst, depending on which way you look at it. Anybody there???
