Improved accessibility at St Luke’s CARES shop

The St Luke’s CARES charity shop on Dewsbury Road in Beeston now has an accessable toilet thanks to funding provided by Councillors on the Inner South Community Committee.

Shop manager Sally Thums said:

“We’re very grateful to Hunslet & Riverside’s Cllr Mohammed Iqbal, Cllr Ed Carlisle and Cllr Paul Wray for the grant and also to Hafeez of MRH Plumbing.

“It’s a real challenge making this beautiful old cinema somewhere that can accommodate all; volunteers, trainees and visitors. With this addition we have definitely got a step closer.”

  1. This is a great start. Does the shop have a raised seat for those who need one? Also please don’t think it can be used as a store room.
