The charity owns shops across the UK to help raise money for its cause.

The new Wallingford branch will be opening in the old Barclays bank premise after it closed in August last year.

It is one of three banks to close in the town with Natwest, in High Street, closing in 2017 and Lloyds, in Market Place, set to close in January next year.
