A HUDDERSFIELD charity shop which helps create a better world for children has celebrated its coming of age.
Volunteers past and present popped in for tea, cake and a chat and to relive fond memories with friends at the Save the Children shop in Westgate, which has marked its 21st birthday.
Among those attending was Charles Taylor, president of the branch and one of the founders.
Mr Taylor said: "I saw some photographs of abandoned children sleeping on the streets of Calcutta and wanted to do something to help."
The shop is staffed and supported by an army of 70 volunteers.
They are organised by Rita Baker, volunteer shop leader who has been involved since the shop opened.
Andrea Brown is volunteer deputy shop leader.
A spokeswoman from the charity said: "Twenty-one years later the need is even greater today. Six hundred million children live in families surviving on less than a dollar a day (66 pence)."
Anyone wanting to get involved in the shop can call in or telephone 01484 420300.
